Message from Father
As you may or may not know, we have successfully reached our Phase One goal which consists of new insulated stained glass windows in the sanctuary and choir room. These windows will help beautify the church all the more as a house of God. The unsulation around all of the windows will also be very practical and helpful, both for our expenses, as well as for the comfort of the choir. Thank you for all of your generousity and support. It has been great to see everyone come together to support Phase One.
Now that we have exceeded the first goal of $50,000, we are hoping that you would continue your generous support to help us to finish Phase Two by installing new windows in the nursery. The window scene depicts a beautiful image of Jesus speaking with children, which would be fitting for that area. Those windows will cost $40,000 of which we have currently raised $15,000. With your help we are hoping to raise the remaining $25,000. Your donation, large or small is greatly appreciated.
With your continued charitable contributions and future fundraisers, such as a Fall Brunch, Mardi Gras and other activities, we are hopeful to reach the goal in the near future for a next year installation. We welcome family donations from memories or other special intentions. Donations may be offered during the collection at any Mass or mailed directly to the parish office (St. Ingatius, P.O. Box 126, Annandale, MN 55302). Please mark your donation "Building Fund".
To further help reach our goal we are hosting a Harvest Brunch Fundraiser. The event will be held on Sunday, October 27th, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. downstairs at St. Ingatius. Join us for a delicious brunch of french toast bake, Gluten-free egg bake, sausage, cheesy hashbrowns, homemade applesauce and muffins and beverages. The will also be a 10-15 "select your item" raffle for added fun and funds. Mark your calendars and join our parish community as we strive to reach our Phase Two goal.
Thank you again for all of your past and future support. It will be great to see your donations materialized with the October/November installation of the new windows and insulation. We are looking forward to our community seeing the new windows as they create an even more beautiful sanctuary for God.
