Since the St. George Church Preservation Society (SGCPS) is a volunteer organization, all ongoing expenses (postage, printing, networking, web site, accounting,etc.) are paid from the proceeds of fund-raising events and revenue from the items in the St. George Store.
Church Restoration Fund
All direct donations and pledge payments were documented and are held in a reserve fund.
With approval of our major donors, proceeds from the SGCPS restoration fund will be used to cover the costs that will be incurred for the
St. George WWII Monument project.
On Veterans Day 2023, we announced our partnership with Mary, Queen of Peace Parish to repair and restore the St. George WWII plaque that was once located on the front of the church. A plan was developed to place the plaque on a new monument in the St. George section of St. John Vianney cemetery in Carrick. A dedicated parishioner from the Class of 66 has volunteered to perform the extensive repairs and restoration of the plaque. A very generous member of the Class of 68 will construct a monument where the memorial plaque will be displayed. Everyone, including the descendants of the 1,071 parishioners who are named on the plaque can honor those who served.
At the conclusion of our mission and with further input from our major donors, their remaining funds will be donated to their chosen charities.
