Thanks be to God and to the help of the Holy Angels! We are have reached our initial goal! We are at $913,000 plus the matching funds of $900,000 given by an anonymous donor for a total raised of $1,813,000!!! The original estimate of $1.8 million remains on target. However, this amount does not include infrastructure costs, furnishings, landscaping and architect fees estimated to cost an additional $650,000.
The Msgr. O’Callaghan Divine Mercy Center will be the centerpiece of MDM’s envisioned retreat complex. It will provide the basic necessities of kitchen, dining area, and meeting space meeting space for the Mission — all of which we sorely need in order to expand our ability to provide retreats for various groups throughout the year and in all kinds of weather.
One friend of ours, Jerry Anz, is raising money toward the Center’s kitchen, in memory of his beloved wife, Caroline. We feel very honored to be the beneficiaries of his efforts. All of these efforts combine to make us believe that God wants this Center to be constructed sooner rather than later.
We are glad to see the Center under construction. We feel a sense of urgency to create the retreat center and sanctuary that will spread the message and ministry of God’s mercy—year round and to many more people.
