Between Nov. 27, 2016, First Sunday of Advent and Jan. 8, 2017, Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, anyone who donates $1,000.00 or more will be “matched” by our anonymous donor. In other words, anyone who donates $1,000.00 will, in effect, be donating $2,000.00 to the Drive for the necessary repairs and renovations to both St. Patrick’s and to St. John the Baptist.
The necessary repairs and renovations to preserve these buildings are now ours, to carry onward the Catholic faith and traditions that were founded here during the 1800’s. Please consider your donation to the Matching Fund Drive.
