Roof Follow-up Email Video

Dear Parishioner: 

Every house needs to replace its roof eventually, including the House of God! Unfortunately, after lasting decades, the roofs on St. Joseph Church and Parish Center both need extensive repair very soon. 

You’ve likely heard Father Emmanuel talk about this project. We are now moving to the ‘action’ stage, and Guardian Angels Parish has officially launched its Raise the Roofs campaign to raise the money necessary to replace the roofs on St. Joseph’s Church and Parish Center. Work has been ongoing this year to identify the necessary work, and obtain cost-effective bids. 

In order to start and complete this work, the Parish is undertaking a five-year capital campaign to raise $200,000 to improve and protect our buildings for current and future parishioners. We are asking parishioners to make a 5-year pledge, made as either a monthly or annual sum. Doing so will help the Parish start work in the spring to avoid further damage to the buildings. 

There are many ways to give, including monthly envelops, pledge cards (available at church), and by visiting our Raise the Roofs campaign website and pledging and donating online. 

We’ve also prepared a VIDEO (Click Here) to help  parishioners and others better understand the need and urgency of Raise the Roofs, and to help to spread word of this campaign to others in the community and elsewhere that would help support this project. 

We hope you will share our VIDEO (Click Here) and your campaign with your friends, family and places of work. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated, and the more hands we have giving, the easier it will be to achieve our goal. All contributions go directly and exclusively toward roof repairs. Together, we can reach our capital campaign goal of $200,000. 

On behalf of Guardian Angels Parish, we thank you in advance for your generosity and for helping to ensure the future of our place of worship and our Church community. 

Sincerely in Christ, 

Roofs Fundraising Committee:

Pastor, Rita Becker, Dan Diehn, Jan Eckles, Tom Gearing, Bob Laubach, Jim Olson, Brian Stemper, & Ron Wirtz
