LIGHT UP THE CHURCH CAMPAIGN

After much discussion, we are ready to move forward with replacing and upgrading the lighting in the Church. The plan calls for the installation of a lighting panel (something we do not have currently); new chandeliers in the main body of the Church, as well as the front gathering space; new lighting on both side sections, as well as the Holy Family Shrine and the Blessed Sacrament; new lighting for the sanctuary and the Crucifix, the Risen Christ, and Archangel Window. Each aspect of the project involves additional work on wiring and other equipment, especially where there currently are no lights. To assist in making this project more feasible for the parish finances, we are inviting sponsors for the project. Sponsors will be included in a plaque, which will also include the mosaic and marble donors to the recent sanctuary project and will be similar to the current plaques for the Stained Glass and Stations of the Cross donors. All levels of sponsorship are named for liturgical music including “light” in the title. Just a little note, if this is not a project you are interested in sponsoring, but are looking to provide support in the future, our next project will be new kneelers and refinishing the existing pews in the center section of the Church. Stay tuned.

 

The “Lumen Christi - Light of Christ” sponsorship is $20,000 – this covers the cost of installing the lighting panel which controls all the lighting in the Church. This will be the Lead Sponsor.

 

The “Let There Be Light” sponsorship is $15,000 – this provides for all the lighting in the sanctuary, as well as the Holy Family and Blessed Sacrament shrines.

 

The “We are the Light of the World” sponsorship is $10,000 – these are the large chandeliers in the main body of the Church. There are 8 available sponsorships.

 

The “Christ, Be Our Light” sponsorship is $6,000 – this for the lighting on the side sections of the Church. There are 2 available sponsorships.

 

The “This Little Light of Mine” sponsorship is $4,000 – these are the chandeliers in the front gathering space. There are 5 available sponsorships.

 

The “I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light” sponsorship is $4,000 – this provides the lighting on the
Risen Christ and the Archangels Window.
