St. Joseph’s chapel is a historic building. This means that we need to abide by certain rules about the materials and techniques that can be used for restoration to preserve its look close to its original appearance.
Since 2011, we have applied every 1-2 years and received seven grants from the historic commission of MNCPPC, totaling $292,000. These funds allowed us to bring electricity to the chapel, remediate termite problem, repair and then replace part of the roof, restore wooden verge boards and original windows, restore masonry and repoint brick.

Everywhere he went he either oversaw the building of churches or supported the same with his attention and prayers... He wrote about the godly work of building churches:
"In building churches here on earth, we create for ourselves eternal habitations in heaven."
