Latest News about Capital Improvements and Renovations
(April 2, 2017) We are heartened and yet should not be surprised by the wonderful financial response as these two campaigns draw to a close. As of April 2, the originally pledged amount ($362,000) is 96% paid; the 2016 challenge by the Diocese pledged at $30,250 is 89% paid. Given total expenditures of $416,000, St. Michael’s is $33,780 away from perfect financial balance on its use of this capital. Click here to view the report including photos that we delivered to the Diocese required by its $7,950 grant. There is also a paper copy on the bulletin board outside the storage room in the long carpeted hallway on the lower level. We’ll provide a final financial update this summer when the official pledge periods end. Thank you, again.
(March 29, 2017) In 2016, St. Michael's was awarded a Peter James Lee Small Church Revitalization grant from the Diocese of Virginia, in the amount of $7,950, to assist in the completion of the Final Phase of MFIF. We applied that grant money to the new flooring in the Parish Hall, replacement of "accordian walls" in our classrooms, installation of a hard wall and pocket doors in the new Nursery, and updates to the Sacristy. As part of the acceptance of the grant we were obligated to provide a final report of the work supported by the grant to the Diocese of Virginia. We are pleased to report that we released that report.The Final Report for Grant from Peter Lee Endowment can be read here.
