 ST. ANN’S CHURCH RENOVATION CAMPAIGN UPDATE
“Remember – Restore – Renew”campaign_8301c-1

 The Capital Campaign Committee along with the Finance Committee are pleased to report that our Capital Campaign continues to develop successfully with over $710,000.00 pledged. We can also report that the work on the Church building should commence this week! The first phase will be work done on the exterior in conjunction with the stained glass windows. After this work is completed we will tackle the front doors and steps.

The work on the brick and foundation will be extensive and will allow us to create a strong foundation of stability for the building for the coming decades. All these efforts are being coordinated with Aramark; the project management firm that will help us oversee the renovations. The work will require that scaffolding be erected around Church and will include: repointing, repair of the front steps and brick replacement where necessary.

We thank you for your continued support and for your patience. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that the repairs may cause. If you have any questions, please email us at mreggiardo@alianzacorp.com.

Best wishes for a fantastic summer,
Vanessa and Marcelo Reggiardo
