Long-time parishioners will remember the stage in our original school gym and the important role it played in the life of our parish. The budget didn’t allow for a separate stage when the new gym was constructed and its absence has been felt. Our goal is to raise at least $38,000 to purchase our own portable stage platform, pipe and drapes in addition to a small storage structure near our butterfly garden to store these items when they are not in use.  The stage should pay for itself in only a few years, and eliminate our need for rentals. It’s something that our school and parish will enjoy for years to come. Not attending the auction? Send a check to the rectory MQP Auction/Fund-A-Need.
