SJXXIII BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE COMMITTEE UPDATE
Your parish building and maintenance committee has been pleased to complete following items in 2016: (1) renovation of the reconciliation room including a new glass door to conform to safe environment standards, (2) relocation of the choir, and (3) parking lot remediation and sweeping.
As I’m sure most of you know, we have a good building. However, at 49 years of age it is starting to need some major maintenance and repair. To maintain the integrity of the building envelope (i.e. its outer shell), we need to replace many broken and cracked bricks and re-point the brick and decorative masonry trim panels. We have a quote for this work and would like to proceed prior to another freeze season. The cost of this work will be approximately $12,500.00.
We are hoping to proceed with this work in September 2016, but we cannot proceed until we receive funds specific to this project. Therefore, I ask for your generosity towards this project. If you are able to help, please make your cheque payable to “St. John XXIII Parish” and indicate that your donation is to be used towards “Building Envelope Repair”. Thank you for considering this important request.
