October 2022 update
We have reached out to the Murdock Trust and submitted a grant application for the remaining costs of the structure.
The next step will be a site visit from the trust and in the meantime, we will pray that our grant request is accepted.
James Wurzer will soon be purchasing structure materials, he is awaiting some information from the Archdiocese.
Chris Walker and Kelly Graeme meet once a week with James, Becki and Vikki to keep the project on track.
Construction is planned to start June 2023 and to be completed early September 2023.
