Last week we set a goal of $10,000 to cover the restoration costs of the Infant King statue and its new portable baldacchino by October 7, the first anniversary of the fire. We are deeply thankful for the donations, large and small, which have since come in through the GoFundMe site and directly to the Shrine. Today we are glad and grateful to report exciting news! The total goal amount of $10,000 has already been met on Sunday, September 25. Thanks be to God!
During the days which remain until the fire anniversary, may we ask you and your friends to help us put a roof over the head of our Infant King? Thanks to your generosity, we have now raised about $1.5 million toward rebuilding the new roof—that’s over 50% of our $2.8 million goal!
With deep appreciation, the Shrine priests offer Holy Mass each week for the intentions of you dear benefactors. Let us be confident in the words of Christ Child to Venerable Father Cyril: “The more you honor Me, the more I will bless you!”
