Blessing of the Corrigan Building Elevator

January 2019

We are delighted to announce that another funding priority of our Foundations of Faith campaign has been successfully completed. In January 2019, Fr. Carl blessed the new elevator in the Corrigan Building and then applauded the men and women who were honored to take their first ride. Our thanks to the Family Mass Community for spearheading the elevator project and to all the St. Giles parishioners who are generously supporting our campaign.

In less than a year (we launched this $2.25 million campaign in February, 2018), we have received $1,965,955 in pledges and gifts from 436 donors. This allowed us to complete the Frawley Building windows and then move on to the elevator installation. With just $284,045 needed to reach our goal – and so many parishioners still deciding about their level of support – the future looks bright.

If you are interested in participating in Foundations of Faith or have any questions, please contact Sharon Bresnahan at 708-383-3430, ext. 420 or email at campaignoffice@stgilesparish.org. In the meantime, your prayers for a successful conclusion to this effort are greatly appreciated!
