The new St. Matthew Building Committee, Chaired by Steven Cabaniss, has been hard at work evaluating property needs, cost estimates and priorities. The Building Committee will work with the Finance Council to establish both short term and long term goals for budgeting to maintain St. Matthew property in good repair and condition. To date, the Church gutters and drains have been checked for proper clearance and drainage, repairs are scheduled for the front stone wall as well as replacement of the drain catch basin at the handicapped parking area, and estimates are being obtained for painting the Church interior. Reducing energy costs are also being studied in detail working with the electricity provider, Eversource. Parishioners interested in joining the Building Committee or with improvement suggestions may contact Steve Cabaniss at 860-436-7490.
