It is the season of giving — and of late-year tax planning. This might be the perfect time to make a donation that will beautify the St. Francis church gardens and make it safer for our elderly and students.
St. Francis is starting a lighting project that will both beautify the church grounds and make the area safer for evening prayer events, as well as PSR students and staff. Approximately fourteen lamp posts will line the sidewalks of the garden including the walkway to Prairie Mission Retirement Village. Light posts will also illuminate the area between the church and rectory.
The Project is Underway ...
... but we still need your help. So far most of the trenching has been done and conduit has been laid between electrical power sources and the post positions. On December 3rd, the Parish Stewardship Council selected a post light head. The decorative heads will be of a Romanesque design that will complement the arches of the church windows, garden bell tower and the steeple. Now, the heads and posts can be ordered, concrete bases can be laid and work will be continued for an early spring completion. Some of the money is in place, but we will need some more financial support to meet the estimated $15,000 project cost.
If You Would Like to Help:
Donations may be mailed to the church rectory or put in the weekend collections. Please be sure to earmark your donation for the "Lighting Project" on your envelope and the check memo line. Envelopes for this may be found in the back of church, or use your own. Out-of-town donations may be mailed to.
