Appeal to donate to fix paver blocks around Cathedral

St. Mary’s Cathedral, Melapudur, Tiruchirapalli Diocese, Tamil Nadu, India

An appeal to donate generously for the completion other works in the New Cathedral

Dear friends in Jesus Christ,

Greetings and let the grace of the Lord is upon you and your family.

Thanks for your generous donations that made us to construct the Cathedral beyond our expectations. Now the courtyard around Cathedral has to be leveled and cement pavers have to be laid to keep the ground neat and tidy.  The total area is nearly 50,000 sq.ft. To make one sq.ft of paver block, it costs Rs 60 leveling, labour and material. Also we need to make rain water drainage to the nearby pond and to erect electric post and lighting.  For which we need minimum Rs 35 lakhs to Rs 40 lakhs. Look forward your generous donation in small units. Say one family or one person sponsoring 25 sq.ft or 5o sq.ft in terms of Rupee 1500 or 3000. Donate it in two or three monthly installments. This is just an example. You may sponsor more units and support.
