It has been over two-and-a-half years ago that we began "For the Love of Mercy" campaign - a campaign that aimed to raise two million dollars in order to accomplish some very needed projects on our Church. As the money from the campaign came in, we were able to tend to the renovation of the Church bathroom, the installation of a new heating system in the Church, the construction of new offices on the second floor of Saint Anthony's Hall, the renovation of the first floor of Saint Anthony's with a new reception area, the refurbishing of the Schaefer Outreach Center to now house the food pantry as well as the "Well" and the Casa Mary Johanna services of the parish, the painting of the Church, restored pews and sanctuary and side altar reconfiguration of the Church, and finally the removal and restoration of our fifty-nine stained glass windows! Wow! None of this could have happened without the generosity of you, our parishioners.
Some people have paid their pledges - and we are so grateful. Others may have anywhere from a half-a-year to a full year to complete their promised pledges. So, while we are coming down to the home stretch, it would be good to get a snapshot of where we are (regarding the campaign) and what still needs to be done:
May God who has begin this good work for us bring it to fulfilment
