I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to
the parish community for your support of our
school. Through our generous donations to the
Diocesan Capital Campaign, the school was able
to afford the much needed repair and replacement of our
roof. Of the money that was accrued from the Capital Campaign funds, over $25,000 was allocated toward the funding
of this Project. We are grateful to now be able to provide
our school and faith formation communities with a safe, dry,
and better insulated learning environment. We are also incredibly blessed and will be forever grateful for Fr. Sergio
support in making the safety of the school structure a priority. The consideration of the people in our parish is heart-
warming and very much appreciated.
