Running Water at church
Organized by: Tee Fanelli
Our lovely small parish in Rochester Vermont is struggling to continue without the funds needed to update it with running water!! As you can imagine, without water it is extremely difficult to hold the Sacraments, ministries and organizations that help grow a parish. The sacrament of Baptism is often held elsewhere due to the inability to keep our Baptismal font clean and fresh. We cannot hold days of Reflection, evening classes or seminars without a bathroom. Celebrations are almost non existent as there is no way to prepare or clean up dishes without a sink! We even have difficulty keeping fresh flowers on the alter as we have to lug in jugs just to water the flowers each week. It is a blessing to be part of this hard working, faith filled community but we do not have enough money to transform our Church and ensure that it will be here for future generations. If you are nourished by the Word and Sacraments of the Catholic church, please consider helping us.
As a parish we will offer a mass for every contributor. WE pray the Lord will strengthen, and guide us in becoming a stronger presence in the community of his Mercy and Love.
A Steeple would be great too ; )
