|Church Doors Project|
October marks the final month of our annual Parish Projects mini-campaign, which runs from May through October of every year. This summer's focus is Church Doors: Phase Two (the Touhy Avenue main entrance doors.) As of September 15, we've deposited $ toward the fund. With your continued generosity, we can finish the project and bring the beautiful new doors to all the other entrances of our church during the summer of 2012. The total cost for the three double door sets at the main entrance, the double doors to the alley on the north side, and the two single access doors also on the alley side is $75,000. Although there will no longer be dedicated Parish Projects envelopes in your packets, you may continue to make an instant donation to this very important fundraising project at GiveCentral.org, our online payment partner.
The road salt that is necessary to ensure safe winter travel on Touhy Avenue has the unfortunate side effect of accelerating deterioration on our adjacent building perimeters. The church doors along Touhy are particularly vulnerable, and Phase One of the project was to replace those doors; that project was completed in early March of 2011. Phase Two is the replacement of the front entrance doors, and if the generosity of our donors permits, the alley doors as well.
We share with you below some recent photographs of the church doorways. Clicking any of the photos will enlarge them into a looping slideshow.
