When the DPAA receipts exceed the parish goal, all overage will be refunded 100% to the parish, free of any diocesan assessment.
All donations received to Divine Mercy’s DPAA over our goal this year will go toward our church restoration fund in anticipation of needed repairs for our church (interior painting, snow guards on roof, gutter repair for church, rectory and convent, roof repair at St. Anthony rectory…)
All donations received to St. Bernard’s DPAA over our goal this year will go toward our new Heating System. With our boiler unrepairable, we need to raise an additional $300,000 for the new system. See the brochures in the entrance of church.
St. Bernard Church is a testimony to the long history of the people of Dayton, KY, overcoming challenges to provide a beautiful worship space for God. Now, our heating system has breathed its last and it is our turn to carry forward this tradition.
In its hundred-year history, St. Bernard has never had air conditioning. Many go to other parishes for Mass during the dog days of summer, when it becomes unbearably hot in church.
Our goal is to have a new heating system installed by September, 2016. We invite generous donors like yourself to help us by making a to the DPAA in the name of St. Bernard parish. Everything received over our goal will go to pay for our new heating system, which will accommodate the later addition of air-conditioning once those funds have also been raised.
