We have been asked by a few parishioners why we had to take down many of the trees on the property.  The reason is that they had either died or were on their way to being completely dead due to the emerald ash borer or other disease.  They were becoming unsightly and a potential hazard.  Due to the generosity of many people, we were able to raise $3,400 toward the $3,750 cost of taking down the 14 trees.  We would like to continue to raise funds in order to plant new trees come spring.  If you are interested, please contact the church office or Tom Djurich.
