The chiller for the main sanctuary, which is responsible for cooling inside the church, needs to be replaced. The chiller is visible from the parking lot as it sits on the roof of the youth server sacristy and was installed in 2003.
American Boiler is our current A/C maintainer, and they have been selected to install the replacement. The estimate is $63,500. We are pursuing a grant from the Annual Catholic Appeal Fund for financial help from the diocese and will announce if that request is approved.
In the meantime, please help contribute toward this unexpected expense! You can mail a check to the parish office, make an online donation, or put a separate envelope in the offering plate.
