What is the Donation for?

Another aspect of our life in the church is the upkeep and maintenance of our premises. To opt not to do so would amount to negligence and to irreversible damage. Our building is 40 years old and it constantly requires repairs and improvements. We must definitely replace the church windows, which are showing visible signs of wear and tear.

Last year we replaced all the hall windows and we used our renovation funds to this end. We have received various quotes for the installation of new windows, which are in the range of $90,000.00. Since we are all going to benefit by this replacement of our windows, so that they can be rendered more functional and efficient, we are soliciting your contribution in order to defray the cost for their replacement.

It is redundant to remind you that we are all using our premises and it is only fair that we should all feel responsible in contributing for their upkeep.

We appeal to your love for our church and community, to continue supporting them, so that we may be able to meet our operational expenses and ensure the uninterrupted function of our services.

You may also communicate with us by mail at helleniccommunity@bellnet.ca
