In the summer of 2015, the Our Lady of Pompei school building was sold. It was a bitter-sweet day for many. The sale of the building removed the expenses of maintaining the building, and the funds from the sale provided operation expenses for the next few years. However, we have begun a rebuilding phase - needing to renovate and repair parts of the church property to help carry out our mission and stewardship
among our parishioners. Our rebuilding campaign stated in February 2016
with renovations to the rectory dinning room and kitchen, rectory offices,
and a room behind the choir loft to serve as a multipurpose and music
rooms. We are grateful for the volunteers who have come together to do
the work, but need to raise money for supplies. Our goal for this part of the
project is $10,000.
You can help Rebuild Pompei in many ways:
1. During Lent, contribute to the second collection that will benefit
the building fund.
2. Use envelopes marked "Building Fund" in the back of the church
and drop it in a collection basket.
3. Donate online. Last year, two parishioners started an online
campaign assist with our planned rebuilding efforts. Any donation made is sent to Our Lady of Pompei automatically.
4. Give the gift of continual support - register with the parish, attend Mass, and get involved!
The start o this project is a surprise for Fr. Lou when he returns from the hospital!
Pompei wasn't built in a day, but together, we can help make it last forever. We appreciate your continued support and generosity!
