Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ;
During our February 2021 Vestry, we voted to repair our bell tower. Since then, we discovered that our Rectory and Church needed new roofs. Our Property and Finance Committees have launched a financial campaign to do this work. We are writing to you now to ask for your support of these necessary repairs. It is important for our parish to know that these present repairs will not be financed from the invested funds of the Bingle-Jeffries legacy gift. We are committed to using only the income these investments will generate for years to come. Your donations to this campaign will be the primary source of funds for this necessary work. As many of you know, the work on the bell tower, roofs, and campaign has already begun. Despite Covid-19, St. Andrew’s has been busy and forward-looking!
And there is more work to be done!
The first ‘silent' phase of our campaign is close to successfully raising half of the $70,000 needed for this necessary work. It is now time to enter the second half of our campaign to raise a further $35,000. St. Andrew’s needs the
support of one and all.
We are asking that you consider participating in this great work. Contributing to our campaign will help to ensure that St. Andrew’s, now 227 years old, will touch the world with God’s Grace for years to come. Covid-times have been anxious times. Our people need the church.
Your gift, of whatever amount you give, will help to assure that St. Andrew’s will long continue to offer the healing hands of Jesus of Nazareth to the young and old alike for generations to come.
I know that St. Andrew’s can count on you, in our time, to continue the work begun so many years ago in another lakeside town in Galilee. It is our joy and our calling to pray, work, care, and live for one another in our own lakeside town of Grimsby.
