Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Thomas the Apostle Church,
For those whom attended Mass this past weekend I am sure you could tell that the air conditioning was not working properly. There are two 40 ton units that cool the Church. The unit that does the north side is no longer functioning. The units were installed in 1972. The south side unit was replaced approximately nine years ago. The north side unit was repaired in early spring and was running well. Unfortunately there is now another repair needed that is not worth making on such an older and inefficient unit. The cost of the replacement will be around $45,000. It will take several weeks for a new unit to be delivered and installed. In the meantime, the south side unit will try and keep the church as cool as possible. In the coming weeks we will also have a special collection to help offset this large emergency repair. The money collected previously on this page will be put towards the repair.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
