Dear Friends of La Salette,
These past months have been tough on all of us. In such stressful times, in order to maintain our psychological and spiritual health, we have to count our blessings. And among our greatest blessings are YOU our friends … YOU have helped us to sustain our ministries and keep our finances solvent. For your unwavering support, we are truly grateful.
Months ago we started to realize that it was time to go ahead and renovate our chapel. It has a rustic charm and prayerfulness not to be tampered with. However, our windows and heaters were installed some seventy years ago. They are dated and inefficient, many parts needed for their maintenance are no longer available and the replacement of both items climbed to $58,000.
Faced with this new financial burden we were not quite sure what to do. Just then the Lord sent an angel. A most generous person, in addition to her personal support, has made available another $25,000 dollars as a matching grant. Therefore we are launching a fund raising effort called:
Renew & Respond Campaign 20
We appeal to you to take up her offer. Every dollar you give is instantly matched, and by doing so, know that you are contributing directly to the future of our beloved shrine.
Humbly we are asking you to help us continue our work of welcoming pilgrims, tourists, and all manner of people to our Shrine; answering the call of God beckoning us to “Come to a holy, quiet place apart,” to be refreshed and renewed in heart and spirit.
Superior & Treasurer: Rev. Joseph Gosselin, MS
Shrine Director: Rev. JohnP. Sullivan, M.S.
