Repairs and Replacements 

Our Bell Tower is coming apart because of water damage. We have spent $3,200.00 so far but it will cost approximately $12-15,000.00 to complete the work. Our church and hall amplifying equipment is now obsolete and requires replacement; the cost will be approximately $14,000.00. Because of increased vandalism we have to install security surveillance cameras which will amount to at least $15,000.00. How will we cover these costs? Only with your generosity and the hard-working fundraising efforts of our parish organizations. You might consider making a donation to the church in memory of a loved one.

Ремонт і Заміни.

1) Через затікання води наша дзвіниця розвалюється. До сих пір було витрачено $3,200.00, але це буде коштувати приблизно $12-15,000.00, щоб завершити роботу.

2) Підсилювачі звуку в храмі, церковній залі та в Каплиці УКОО є застарілі і потребують заміни; кошт такої заміни близько $14,000.00.

3) У зв`язку із зростанням актів вандалізму ми повинні встановити камери відеоспостереження, які будуть коштувати не менше $15,000.00.

Як ми покриємо ці витрати? Тільки з вашою щедрістю і працьовитими зусиллями по збору коштів наших парафіяльних організацій. Ви можете скласти пожертву в пам`ять про дорогих для вас людей.
