Accessible Lift & Bathrooms into the Hall for the Mobility Impaired

Thank you to all those who have so generously contributed towards our proposed Accessible Lift & Bathroom for the Hall! This project would enable anyone who is mobility challenged, including the elderly and babies in carriages, to gain access to our Parish Hall from Westmount Ave., thus making it possible for everyone to participate fully in parish life! The estimated cost for this project is $60,000 which is planned for this summer! So far, we've collected $36,500.00 (halfway there!). For more details about the project, please refer to the easel at the entrance of the church. Special envelopes are also available there.

We are also in the process of creating a space to recognize our benefactors by posting a plaque in our parish hall as it follows:

(1) Gold: $5,000 and more;
(2) Silver: $3,000;
(3) Bronze: $2,000 and
(4) Loyalty: $1,000,

and, of course all donations will be tax receipted! Thank you once again for your generous support!
