|Glory to God, we have some AMAZING news! We have reached our fundraising goal of $75,000 in less than 30 days!! Now we are able to purchase the new building! We are forever grateful to everyone who has contributed to make this dream become a reality! This is an incredible amount of money we have raised in a very short time!|
With all that being said, it it official! Archangel Gabriel is moving (most likely by the last week of April)! As we prepare to occupy our new church property, we will now need to raise funds for necessary renovations, as well as beautification, and items for the new space. Here is a list of items that either need to be done or would be nice to have. Father and the Parish Council will allocate the funds to the highest needs first and then work down to the wants as funds allow.
– Demo and renovate the altar area (demo closets and baptismal pool, move the HVAC system from the closet into the attic, etc.)
– Renovation of the iconostasis to fit the new space
– New flooring
– New lighting
– Change the popcorn ceiling
– A new sign for outside
– A dome to replace the steeple
– New security system
– New cameras
– Networking equipment for Internet coverage throughout the building
– New commercial coffee pot for the kitchen
– Furniture for the classrooms
– A Panikhida memorial tray/table
– Some additional icons
– Processional cross
– Processional banners
– A Litya tray
