"A Time to Build" Campaign
Our campaign fundraiser, CCS, submitted its final report last week at a meeting with Campaign Volunteers and parish staff. The in-pew appeals were very successful. A clear and orderly plan was outlined to ensure that our volunteers and staff bring the campaign to a successful conclusion, now that we will be on our own.
Fr. Manning and other volunteers are still reaching out to potential donors, and there are some parishioners who have not yet indicated whether or not they will donate. There is much work to be done to document memorial pledges and acknowledge each contribution made. Thank you to all who pledged!
Memorial Wall in the Gymatorium
You may notice that some of the plaques from the Memorial Wall in the Gymatorium for "Lift High the Cross" have been removed for their engraving with the final list of parishioners who completed their pledges for "Lift High." The completed Memorial Wall should be re-assembled within a few weeks.
Church Renovation and Expansion Project
We have begun the next phase in the selection of a Construction Manager for the Church project, working closely with our architect and recommendations from the Diocesan Building Commission.
The contractors received a Request for Proposal document (RFP), which includes a non-binding preliminary cost estimate, among other demonstrations of the company’s ability to accurately build, budget, and schedule our project. The contractors also received schematic design drawings, demolition plans, and a detailed drawing of the building’s proposed construction.
We asked the contractors to submit the proposals no later than June 4, and to prepare for interviews during the week of June 11.
