Up On the Roof

In the early 1960s, the Drifters sang about the peace one experienced when one temporarily escaped the problems one had by getting away from it all by finding refuge on the roof. For us at Good Shepherd, the roof is not a source of peace, but of unrest. We are going to do the south section of the roof in September. This section has been the most consistent source of leaks. At this time, the entire roof would cost close to $50,000 which we presently cannot afford. Hopefully, we will be able to complete the entire roof next year. We have had little respite in taking on one major project after another. After the roof project is complete, we will have other projects such as a lawnmower, security cameras, new steps for the entrance of the church, etc. We will have to prioritize. We still have to decide whether we want a rectory on the parish grounds, which would be ideal, or to purchase a home within close proximity to the church, which would be more affordable. The capital improvement collection on the third Sunday of the month is for the rectory.
