St. Mary’s addition set to break ground

It was an exciting weekend on April 28/29 at St. Mary’s Church here when parishioners were presented with conceptual drawings of the new parish centre by Woodbridge Constructors of Thunder Bay.
Construction will begin this summer.
To kick off the “Countdown to Construction,” a concert will be held next Tuesday (May 15) at 7 p.m. in the church, where many parishioners and locals are set to showcase their talents.
The performance is open to all, with admission being a “goodwill offering.”
Bishop Fred Colli will break ground for the new parish centre Sunday, May 20 at noon, with a barbecue to follow.
Fundraising efforts for the new centre have been very successful to date, with $700,000 of the $1-million goal already having been reached.
