New St. Louis Church Project Update
It's hard to believe that a year has gone by since we have been in our new church. God has truly blessed our community. We have seen a wedding, a few baptisms and a couple of funerals take place in this church in the past year. We also hosted the Ecumenical Good Friday Community Service here this year.
We are thankful to all those who made it possible with your monetary donations, donation of your time and talents as volunteers during construction time and are still doing so as we continue to go forward with completion works. I would like to say a special thank you to Charlotte (Char) Kerelko, who served as chairperson for the Building Committee . Because of health issues she had to move with her husband, Dan to Villa Vista in Cromwell. Thank you Char for all that you have done during the planning and construction of this church. May God bless you and your family.
We continue to thank God for blessing our community with the means and with the generosity of others who helped us to bring us to this point. Let us continue to trust in His Divine Providence that what He allowed us to do so far we will bring to completing through his help.
Since the last update we have added these to our new building:
- Put a canopy over the main entrance of the building (south side) and added concrete platforms at every entrance and emergency exit.
- We submitted a plan for the kitchen to the State and it was approved. We finished tiling the kitchen floor and bought some appliances - freezer, refrigerator, stainless steel shelves, counters, oven. A commercial food mixer was also donated by a parishioner.
- Acquired a steel tower for the bells which will be installed in the Spring when it is warmer.
More Urgent Needs:
- Sidewalks and parking.
- Continue to work on completing the kitchen.
- Reducing our debt. As of May 1st wee have $81,269.42 left to pay back on the loan.
- Complete the canopy over the main entrance (siding).
Projects for the future
- Air handler unit for the air exchange system and for future air conditioning if needed
- Stained glass inserts for the windows in the worship area
We continue with the "That's My Tile" drive. We sell 8"x 8" tiles for $150 for memorials or for any occasion you would like us to pray for. These tiles are displayed on the "Memorial Wall" in the social hall in the new building. A Mass is offered monthly for all the intentions that are mentioned on the tiles. To place an order for a tile contact the parish office.
Monthly basket raffles are drawn at the end of Mass of the last Sunday of each month. Proceeds are for the building and for our youth. The donor of the basket will decide where to designate the proceeds.
We will be holding another raffle of a riding lawn mower during the Catfish Festival in July. Tickets are now available for $10 per ticket. There are four prizes to be won. 1st prize is a KUBOTA zero-turn riding mower; 2nd prize a 21 inch gasoline push mower; 3rd prize a RYOBI 40V battery operated weed wacker and 4th prize is a $100 cash prize.
If you wish to make a donation to the building fund please make the checks payable to St. Louis Church Building Fund.
