As stewards of our sacred sanctuary, we must maintain this grand building for the rest of the 21st century- and beyond.
While there are smaller projects that need to be completed, your Vestry has decided that the most pressing need is for a new gas boiler to heat the church. Therefore, Vestry has authorized starting a capital campaign to raise funds to replace the current boiler.
The boiler was installed in 1987 and converted to gas in the 2010s. It is on its last legs. Experts have examined it and have found that four of the six metal heating segments are leaking water. The cost of replacing just the segments is almost as much as the cost of the entire boiler. The cost of a new boiler will be between $60,000 and $80,000- plus the cost of lining the chimney.
Worshipping in Trinity is impossible during the cold months without a properly functioning boiler.
A new boiler is a necessity. Many of our other beautiful features could be damaged without the heat from the boiler, including the organ which has been refurbished at great expense.
Therefore, we are turning to you, Trinity parishioners. You have never failed your church. We believe, once again, that we will come together to raise the necessary funds.
Please use the “church repair” envelopes found in your 2024 envelope pack. They are found on March 3rd and June 22nd but feel free to fill them and place them in the offering plate at any time.
