In the past 2 weeks we have received such a flood of donations for the new church carpet that it will be completely paid for out of your generosity! Wow! That’s stewardship!
I’ve been told that our carpet is about 12 years old (probably from the time of the Church’s 100th anniversary) during the time of Fr. Ed Dura as Pastor. Regardless of its exact age, our carpet is worn and in need of replacement. Encouraged by a couple of generous donors, we have the option to replace it before Christmas with a medium quality carpet at about $27K that should last about 15-20yrs. However it will begin to show wear and tear at about 12-15yrs. A more expensive carpet, made of wool, at about $50K is expected to last about 40-50yrs, but still looking new after 20-25 years. However, this special carpet will need to be made and won’t be available until around Easter. If you were to choose, which would you choose? We’ll be discussing this with the Finance Committee but I’m interested in your input. In the meanwhile, if you’d like to make a contribution to the Carpet replacement, please make a check payable to St. Anne Church and include in the memo line, “Carpet.” Thank you! –Fr. Dan
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
