Special Announcement from Deacon Ken
Major St. Michael Repair Projects Upcoming
Our Parish has two large costly upcoming repair projects on the horizon. I am reaching out to the parish for referrals or business contacts in these two areas that we can talk to, who may assist the parish to accomplish these in the most economical matter.
The first is a new roof for the rectory behind the church. It is estimated to be a $20,000 project. It will need to be replaced in 2020.
The second issue is ground water infiltration along the front of the church by the School of Religion, and a similar issue at the rectory, causing flooding in heavy rains. The cost of this waterproofing is $10,000.
If you would know of any contractor in these two areas, that may be willing to work with St. Michael on these projects, please reach out to our Facility Manager, Deacon Bill Lange at 770-297-5276 or E-mail Deacon Bill or talk to Father Tim.
Yours in Christ,
