A Few Words from Father Steve
I arrived on Friday, June 1st. On the
following Monday, I was informed that both roofs were leaking. First,
I was taken to the Main Church and shown a leak by the pews in front
of the tabernacle. We then went to the Chapel and found a leak right
in front of the sanctuary which was damaging the hard wood floor. Having
just come from Saint Joseph’s in Quincy, I had been plagued there
too by a leaking roof and constant repairs due to water damage. I know
that repairs here are needed to be done immediately. We looked to the
expertise of Duffy’s Roofing Company and they were able to beautifully
repair those two roofs for just under $4,000. The roof repair at the
Main Church should be sufficient at this time. While the repairs to
As homeowners know, winter weather, rain and wind also damage the exterior of any home. The same is true in the case of our two parish churches. In both of our Churches, there is substantial wear and tear on our windows as well. Keeping the windows intact and strong keeps the water from causing any damage inside the buildings. With this in mind, these are repairs that I have determined need to be done as soon as possible. The caulking of the windows and painting of the exterior of both Churches is work that definitely needs to be done before the next winter season. Richard Allen Painting has given an estimate of $12,000 for the church and $8,000 for the Chapel. In looking at the extensive amount of work to be done, I find these estimates to be very reasonable. Realizing that by not doing these repairs it will eventually cause more problems, I have approved this work.
I apologize to you for such a detailed column but I believe in complete transparency in dealing with all aspects of parish life. I am so grateful for such an incredible staff and wonderful Parish and Finance Councils which are always ready to advise. I especially thank you for your continued generosity. Our weakly Offertory speaks of the importance Saint Christine’s Parish is in our lives. I am extremely grateful we have been able to exceed half our goal for the Grand Annual Collection which covers our usual expenses. Thank you to those who have made their contribution. Unfortunately the expenses that I have outlined in this column are not covered by the Offertory and Grand Annual. I know in my own life, it is my faith that has made a difference. I am always confident of God’s presence in the life of the Church. It is my hope and my commitment that the crosses on the steeples of our Church and our Chapel will remain bright and strong to strengthen the faith of generations to come.
With love, Father Steve
