Dear St. Mary’s family,

Our grand, sacred space needs your help. Our building is now 132 years old, and as with any old structure, it has some issues. One pressing issue is a persistent leak in the St George’s Chapel that has damaged the ceiling and the floor in the northwest corner of the chapel. A reputable company with experience with historic buildings found several areas in the walls and joints that could be contributing to the leak. Their bid to repair the root causes of the leak was very reasonable at $3,800.00.

This isn't an expense that we were able to include in this year’s budget, but it's only going to get more expensive to fix the longer we put it off. The Vestry is asking for your support to repair the leaks. You can donate online by clicking here, or you can drop a check in the offering plate or the mail with “St. George’s Chapel” in the memo line. Thank you in advance for joining your St. Mary’s family in caring for the sacred space that serves as a beacon of light for so many of us!

Many thanks,

Don Clark, Junior Warden
Chris McQueeny, Treasurer
