St. Bernard's Church Rectory
We are pleased to announce that after six months of construction the rectory renovation is finally coming to a close. Every room in this mid 1800's residence was in need of updating. From wallpaper removal to the updating of bathrooms , to a kitchen remodel and more. We have received the necessary approval for occupancy which means the moving and unpacking can begin. This relocation back to the rectory will happen in stages. First, Father Alan and Father Peter will move back in to the residence hopefully by mid August. Once completed, we will begin the office relocation from the current garage apartment to the first floor of the Rectory.
After everyone is moved in and settled, we will plan an Open House for our parishioners so you can see the completed Rectory renovation which is the direct result of your generosity. In the meantime, check out these before and after pictures of the Rectory Kitchen! In the weeks ahead we will highlight different areas of the rectory "transformation".
St. Joseph Cemetery, Keene
We have received approval from the Real Estate and Facilities Board of the Diocese of Manchester to install our new fence at St. Joseph’s cemetery in Keene. To the right is a watercolor painting by parishioner Donovan Carlson of the proposed cemetery fence. The fencing, wrought iron and granite, has been ordered and is expected to be installed this fall. We are excited for this significant improvement to beautify our holy Catholic cemetery.
Capital Campaign Boxes
As a reminder, in the vestibule of each church you will find a Capital Campaign box clearly marked. The box contains campaign materials, payment envelopes, brochures, pledge cards, etc. If you need any of these materials or want to share them with someone, please feel free to take from the box. We continue to accept new pledges!
Campaign donations/pledges are still being accepted.
With the increase in costs due to inflation, we anticipate our original cost estimates to be low. If you have not already given to the campaign and would like to participate there are a number of ways you can donate:
