Gift to Mary Fund
From Fr. Robert, Cathedral Pastor: "The Gift to Mary Fund is meant to be our lifeline for necessary and long overdue, major repairs needed throughout our campus. Due to the nature of these assessed needs and the high cost for each one of them, I am writing to address them one by one, in an effort to be as clear as possible about the road laid before us.
I’ve said before that it is never easy, nor pleasant, when the the time comes to talk about money, and this time is no different. However, the roof of our church, simply put, is in bad shape. It is in such a state of disrepair that its condition must be addressed immediately. Any further damage to our roof will mean further interior damage to ceilings, walls, fixtures and artwork. If this happens, loss and repair costs will grow exponentially. The cost estimate for this has come in at $1.9 million. Our Memphis Diocese has been generous in transferring a donation of $300,000 towards this project, with the Day Foundation generously agreeing to match it. A few parishioners made donations of $300,000, and Gift to Mary collections have reached $150,000. Yes, Brothers and Sisters, we are half way there with $1 million!
Additionally, we need to replace the lights in the church, along with the computer system that coordinates them. That estimate is $30,000. Our I.T. Department needs long overdue updates to servers, storage and batteries, all estimated at $50,000. If this outdated system fails, it will cost upwards of $100,000, plus weeks of restoration of data for both the church and school, and it will put school on hold for weeks! Lastly, a section of our A/C system needs to be replaced, and that estimate is $50,000 as well.
Please consider supporting the project of a new roof, or any of the other, very important projects listed by giving to “Gift to Mary.” If you wish to donate to a specific project, please note that on your donation, and your gift will be directed toward that project."
