Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is a great pleasure to congratulate the congregation and friends of St. Mary Magdalene for having completely paid for the roof of the Church through their generous donations.
The amazing part of this successful endeavour is that fundraising for the roof began and was completed during the lockdown of Covid-19.
The roof looks absolutely great. We hope you think so too. As has been said, the roof's 50-year written guarantee is a gift from our congregation to future congregations, to relieve them of the periodic financial angst of having to replace the roof every 10 to 15 years or so.
That's not all, there is more for this remarkable congregation to celebrate! As most of us know, Church overhead costs continue even through such trying times as we are experiencing. But, your continued generosity in maintaining your weekly and monthly givings mean that the church has been able to so far, meet our operating obligations.
Thank you to each one of you for helping to keep our Parish healthy as we prepare to return to in-church services. A team is diligently working on the implementation of the guidelines of the Diocesan Amber Stage to safely open St. Mary Magdalene and welcome us back. You'll hear more about this in the coming days.
Thank you all so very much, stay safe and keep your loved ones close.
With respect and admiration,
John Clarke, Herb Stone, Kathy Condie, Janet Howes, Brian Pinkerton,
