5 Eastry Rd 2nd Phase Fundraising and update

Dear Friends

I am excited to report that through the generous donations from all our friends and supporters, the Institute raised R335 566 for the 1st phase of the renovations to our new home. I am deeply touched and grateful for all your heart warming generosity and support.

Colleagues and I are happily ensconced in our new premises since December 2009. We are all finding our offices and surrounding garden beautiful and pleasurably invigorating. This will no doubt make us even more productive

The 2nd phase renovation process begins at the beginning of the year in 2011. This entails building a boardroom with 2 additional meeting spaces. To all who have contributed thus far I say a heartfelt thank you. This fundraising effort is aimed at those, who feel they could still contribute or have additional means to contribute further, as well as organisations who prefer to fund fixed assets.

I would greatly appreciate sponsorship for the items listed below for our 2nd Phase Development.

With many thanks prayers and blessings,
Fr. Michael Lapsley, SSM - Director
