Parish Restoration Project (Update 3)
Restoration project goal: $1,000,000
Another update on the restoration and it is all good news. A construction contract with the Commonwealth Company has now been signed and approved by the Parish, the
Bishop, the Diocese, the State of Wisconsin Historical Commission, Commonwealth, and our Architects, Berners Schober. Obtaining approval from all of the these entities took some time but we are now ready to proceed.
Construction has now begun and it is estimated that the construction and restoration of the interior will be completed on or about Dec. 31, 2019. After Commonwealth completes the construction, the Church will still need to be outfitted with new Pews, Ambo, Presider Chairs, Sound System, Baptismal Font, Statuary and a number of other Liturgical Items. This outfitting phase will take some time but it is estimated that it will be completed by Feb. 22, 2020 after which time we will be able to reoccupy the Church space.
Thanks to everyone for your continued Prayers, Patience and Support for this important, once in a lifetime, project. Also a Special Thanks to all for your contribution to this restoration. Our need for additional funds for the outfitting phase continues. PLEASE consider additional gifts, or if you have not yet contributed please consider a gift, for this final phase of the project. If we do not raise the needed funds for outfitting the entire phase, some items will need to be purchased or installed at a later date again depending upon funding.
WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED.
