Property & Maintenance Committee

 

Message from the Property & Maintenance Committee

The Property and Maintenance Committee was formed in the spring of 2015 to assist the pastor with the day-to-day operation of the physical property of our parish.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, we respectfully submit the following report and financial breakdown of the Repair and Maintenance expense lines of this year’s financial statement.

In addition to the regular maintenance and upkeep of the church, the following summarizes the major expenditures:

The main church roof was replaced in the fall of 2020. The project went well and was below budget. The installation of the approved Lightning Rod System will be completed in the spring of 2021 and will cost an additional $21,027.04 as per the project budget.

  • The audio-visual equipment in the church was upgraded to allow for live streaming of the Mass
  • Lighting upgrades to LED also continued prior to the Lockdowns. The remainder will be replaced once the church is allowed to fully re-open
  • For 2021 in recognition of the reduced revenue resulting from the lock-downs, the committee will carefully consider the need for any new projects prior to proceeding
The Property and Maintenance Committee meets as required to review repair and maintenance needs.  On your behalf, we apply due diligence when considering priorities and when hiring contractors to undertake the work.
