ONE by ONE CAMPAIGN — Update on Church flooring

One by One Campaign has ended. Gifts pledged $98,720. St. Max has already received a portion of funds from the Diocese. Wi-Fi was updated, and two new Smart TV’s were purchased for Faith Formation. Replacement of the floor in the church begins on January 16, 2023. Lastly, a ramp will be installed at entrance to the office.

Replacing church floor is an enormous project. Diocese money covers a portion of this project. Anyone willing to donate toward the entire cost, send your check stating “church floor” to the Parish Office, and thank you.

Advent is a time to pray intensely, to reserve the important place it deserves.
