Dear Friends

As we conclude our Easter season, I am reaching out to share our goals for the Catholic Sharing Appeal in the infomercial linked to this post. This annual appeal offers a vital opportunity to ensure the continued well-being of our beloved church.

This year, our primary focus is on addressing the critical need to replace the 48 windows in our church roof. After two decades of enduring harsh weather conditions, these windows have reached the end of their lifespan. Replacing them will not only enhance the beauty of our sacred space but also improve energy efficiency and overall building integrity.

The total cost for this project is $200,000. Fortunately, we have secured a generous $50,000 grant from the Diocese, leaving us with a goal of $150,000.

However, the impact of your contributions extends beyond this immediate need. Any funds raised above the goal will be directed towards essential improvements within our parish. This could include items such repairs to our HVAC system or the replacement of the church’s hot water heater.

It is important to acknowledge the immense value of your ongoing generosity. Your consistent sacrificial giving allows our parish to undertake meaningful projects and extend a helping hand to those in need. This spirit of charity, embodied in your weekly contributions, exemplifies the essence of our Easter community.

On behalf of our entire parish family, I offer my heartfelt gratitude for your support. Your commitment plays a crucial role in ensuring our church remains a beacon of faith on our holy hill.

I encourage you to consider making a contribution to this year’s Catholic Sharing Appeal. Together, we can ensure the continued strength and vibrancy of our parish community.

Sincerely,

Monsignor Anthony Cincinnati, STD

Pastor, St. Francis de Sales Parish
