The Buildings and Grounds Committee is trying to be responsive to the needs of the Parish while positioning us for the next 50 years.  If you see things that need to be repaired or upgraded, please let a member of the committee know or send a note to the Parish Office.

 

Completed Projects

Completed Projects

 Over the past year, the B&G Committee has completed 7 major projects and over 35 minor projects to preserve and enhance our facilities at St Anthony’s.  The significant projects include:

  • Replacing the Hall kitchen floor.
  • Resealing and restriping the parking lot
  • Painting the Church exterior, the Hall trim, the black railings on the property and the Rectory door.
  • Replacing or repairing most of the wrought iron fencing.
  • Replacing the concrete stairs in front of the church. 
  • Moving our flagpole to a lighted area in the small garden by the Hall so that we can proudly fly our nation's flag around the clock.
  • Assisted the Rummage Sale Committee in locating a 40 foot storage container onto the Church property.
  • Remodeling the Hall bathrooms.
  • Replacing the floors of the Rectory offices.

Current Projects

We are currently refurbishing the Church bathrooms, which should be open and ready for use at the beginning of October 2019.

 

Future Projects

 
Often the first introduction to St Anthony's is at the Parish Office.  Since first impressions can be critical, we would like to enhance both the exterior and the interior of the Office.  The beautiful exterior door has been restained and refinished.  We will be sprucing up the garden in front of the Office/Rectory by removing some small trees, resodding the lawn, and replacing some of the small shrubs. 
 
The 35-year-old zoned thermostat system that controls heat and air conditioning in the three priest apartments in the Rectory is failing and needs to be replaced.

Can you lend a hand?

Many of our larger projects require us to bring in contractors with specialized skills and equipment.  There are, however, many opportunities to save money with do-it-yourself projects.  These can also be great Parish bonding opportunities.  In late January, the EDGE students gave us about 60 hours of effort to help clean the Church, replace kneeler feet and several other projects.

The B&G Committee would like to gather a list of names of Parishioners who are willing to lend a hand from time to time with small projects.  When we identify something that needs doing, we will send out a group email to see who is interested, who has the needed skills, who has the time, and who would like to volunteer for that project.  If you are interested, send a short email to any committee member of to the Parish office and we will place you on the list.
