Windows Restoration Project

How can I support the project?


WRP Fundraising Goal  $ 500,000


Launching a fund-raising campaign with a goal of $500,000 is formidable.   Bisbee’s early residents must have felt the same when asked to raise funds for a new large church.  But they stepped forward, and because of their dedication, we were left a legacy of our wonderful church with its stunning stained glass windows.  For a century parishioners and community members have worked hard to keep the church in good repair.  Now, as our windows are needing more than a little bit of tender loving care, we step forward, and we know that our dedication to this project will be a large part of the legacy we leave to future generations.  
 

Fundraising for the project is underway, and will continue for the next 3-5 years.  The parish is actively seeking grant opportunities to augment our individual efforts.  However, to qualify for grant funds we must be able to demonstrate that we can raise a substantial amount of money on our own.  To accomplish this, we will be holding various fundraising events, and are asking for the support of current and former parishioners, community members and friends far and wide.  Every single donation is important, regardless of size.  It will take all of us, and we ask that you prayerfully consider how you can help.
