Summer and Fall Projects
All of us on the parish staff hope you had a happy relaxing summer. As autumn begins, I just wanted to take a few minutes of your time to let you know of some of the projects we have been working on recently, and let you know about some that we will be looking into this Fall and Winter.
One completed project was the beautiful memorial garden that was recently added by Michael Kanehann as part of his Eagle Scout Project. Michael took the sorrowful situation of losing his brother and friend, and created something beautiful. Continue checking the bulletin in the upcoming weeks for more information to this great new addition to our campus.
Next, the Parish Council, Finance Committee, Fr. Denny and Fr. Liam agreed, after viewing a thorough report by a Archdiocesan approved roofing consultant, that the flat roof on the newer school building should be replaced at our earliest opportunity. Certainly this was the biggest job in terms of scope.
The first step in this process was the removal of the existing, decaying roof, and replacement of rotted roof decking. Then a ½-inch gypsum barrier board was installed on top of the repaired roof deck. This was followed by a tapered foam insulation (polyisocyanurate), that was 1 to 6 inches thick. And finally on top of that was a fleeceback 115 mil Carlisle rubber roofing system. Around the perimeter of the building, new vertical siding facia board panels were installed. When the work was concluded, we received a 20-year Carlisle Full System Warranty. Click HERE to see some photos of the work.
As for work being done in the upcoming months, we are looking at some landscaping in front of the church and rectory, and some painting of the gym. We also will be looking into some maintenance work on the church roof, some pointing work on the church, and some repairs of the stone pillars on our property.
Thank you for your patience during the times it takes for these major projects to be completed. I am aware that it is a disruption to the normal flow of things. Have a beautiful Fall, and I hope to see you around campus!
