Advent – Christmas Matching Fund

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Father Klores, with the support of the Finance Council, has announced that St. Patrick’s will have an Advent-Christmas Matching Fund Drive to raise the funds necessary to repair or restore the structural problems facing both St. Patrick’s and St. John the Baptist church buildings. It is through the generous pledge of an anonymous donor that $500,000 will be “matched.” A letter has been sent to every parishioner outlining all of the details of the Matching Fund Drive. Please carefully study the letter; copies are available in the narthex, with family or friends to see how you can participate in the continued preservation of these historic places of worship.
