We are looking to fix up the house in honor of the bicentennial of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s birthday to eternity. This is a generational upgrade for our parish family. Our current chairs have lasted thirty years. The carpet, over twenty. Our signage is hard to read at 45 MPH. We are an aging community with greater need for hearing assistance. Improvements in these areas will expand the welcome we offer to our parish home.
Samples of the new chairs and carpet are available to see in the Gathering Space. Make sure to check them out and take a test ride. Many parish committees worked very hard in selecting the beautiful match. The carpet replacement work will begin the last week of June. At which time, we will install an induction loop which provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by personal hearing aids with telecoils, thus avoiding hygiene, volume, and other issues that arise with shared hearing assistance devices. Additionally, once people hear how great our parish is, we want them to find us with ease. A new sign on the corner of Route 31 and Theodolite, in continuity with the exiting style of brick and spot lit signs, will provide a welcome to St. EAS.
The goal is $250,000 for the project. To “sponsor a seat” click the link on the top of the page.
