Update: One Year Extension to
Building Our Future in Faith Campaign Approved
To date (10/31/10), we have raised $3.333 million to fund our new narthex, the elevator and parking upgrades. The original $3.8 million was pledged, so we expect the rest to come in by the end of this calendar year, completing our original budget. Thank you so much to all the families and individuals who have generously given (and are still giving) to this campaign.
Why extend the campaign?
In December, our three-year capital campaign was due to come to a close. However, because we accelerated approximately $1.4 million of projects and expenses from phase two of our master plan into phase one for cost-saving measures, the STM Planning Team elected to extend the campaign for one year. Building Our Future in Faith will now conclude December 15, 2011. More information about the campaign extension will be available soon.
