The Responding to God’s Love…Teach the Next Generation campaign gained enough receipts in August to reduce our mortgage from nearly $35,000 to around $18,000. A full report of the receipts and expenses along with interest that was saved will be given later this fall.
We also recently received 2 checks for our participation in the Meals for the Mortgage events. Ruby Tuesday’s (3-nights) = $477.58 and Culver’s (1-night) = $75.00. Our last “Meals for the Mortgage” was at the Collinsville Ravenelli’s, on Monday, Aug. 26th. The shared profit amount will be reported when we receive it. Many thanks to Holy Cross members and friends for your support the past 5 months with the Meals for the Mortgage event.
Holy Cross will be celebrating their 165th anniversary the weekend of Sept. 14th and 15th. Along with this anniversary, plans are being made to shred the mortgage between the Sunday services on Sept. 15th. Please join us for this special celebration in the gym, recieve information and enjoy refreshment.
Thank you to all who has helped with this endeavor.
