I’m not quite sure how old our carpet is. A long time parishioner said it may be as old as 40 years. In any event, our carpet is worn and in need of replacement. Encouraged by a couple of generous donors, we’d like to replace it before Christmas. We have scheduled to begin the work on December 12 and it should be completed by the end of the week. If you’d like to make a contribution to the Carpet replacement, please make a check to St. Anne Church and include on the memo line, “Carpet.” Thank you! –Fr. Dan
