Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $110,000
Immaculate Conception will receive 2/3 of the funds we raise up to our goal of $110,000 and 90 percent of funds raised over goal. These funds will enable us to better welcome Christ and our neighbors by:
• Replacing our Worn Pews with New, More Comfortable Ones
Purchasing new pews can enhance the beauty of the sanctuary and allow us to receive our neighbors and guests in a more comfortable space. Contoured pews can be positioned in order to provide more space for kneeling.
• Replacing the Air-Handling System in the Church
The air-handling system is long overdue for replacement. More efficiently and effectively heating the sanctuary in winter and cooling it in summer will serve the community and save operating expense.
• Replacing the Speakers in the Church
New speakers that produce a clearer sound in the sanctuary will help us to hear God’s word in the Scriptures as we prepare to receive Christ in the Eucharist.
• Enhancing and Fortifying the Cemetery
Burying and praying for the dead are the final acts by which we love our family and friends. Erosion has long plagued the sloping ground of our cemetery. Building a retaining wall, beautifying the cemetery with fresh landscaping, and improving the drainage will help us to honor those who have passed before us in faith.
“Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, ˜I came as a guest, and you received Me.” ~St. Benedict
Living Our Mission is an opportunity for us to rally together as God’s people and advance our sacred work as the Body of Christ. Your faith-filled generosity will be a grace to you and help Immaculate Conception church continue to imitate the love Our Lord showed to his disciples.Fr. Michael Duffy
