HURRICANE FLORENCE DAMAGE/REPAIR
The following was a bulletin insert on the weekend of June 1-2:
PARISH HOUSE (Rectory)
Covered by insurance: replacement of roof and remediation of water damage to ceilings, walls and floors. Roof is complete; drywall and interior finish work has begun. Mold remediation has been done in two rooms. HVAC has completely new ductwork upstairs and down.
NOT covered: replacement of the wiring (1930's vintage), regular maintenance painting: both interior and exterior, and repairs to many rotting exterior window frames, new kitchen counters and needed kitchen cabinets.
Insurance covers repairs but not upgrades. Necessary upgrades include bring bathrooms up to code (at least one to be handicap accessible). Roof was covered and has been replaced. Dropped ceiling has been removed. Carpets have been removed revealing terrazzo floors that need refinishing. Parish staff offices have been temporarily relocated to the Agape Room and the nursery (resulting in the loss of meeting space, storage and Sunday nursery).
PARISH HOUSE -- SELL OR KEEP?
Parish house is 4,564 square feet. Downstairs--Entrance foyer, formal living room, office, bathroom, formal dining room, butler's pantry/breakfast room, kitchen (all 10-foot ceilings), breezeway w/shower, two-car garage, storage room, oyster room/storage. Upstairs -- 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry room. Fully floored 3rd story attic. How large a space does on priest need? Location is desirable from a real estate standpoint, and from a parish convenience standpoint.
Utility costs are substantial due to the size of the house; closing off the upstairs did not significantly lower the cost. A smaller residence would have proportionately smaller monthly bills.
Proceeds from the sale would offset the new priestly residence and will help defray the Morton Center repair costs and other needed ongoing parish plant repairs (for example, replacement of fogged windows in the Agape Room, updated Church sound system wiring and speakers, upgraded security for the Church/Moeslein Hall and Morton Center). Any funds ``leftover'' would be put into a Diocesan Savings Account for future development.
Give the proposal of selling or keeping in your prayer and thoughts and let us (Fr. T or staff members) your thoughts as we come to a decision soon!!
