We are delighted to share that we have surpassed the Bold Faith | Building a Future Celebration Goal of $8 million and we now confidently set our sights on the Challenge Goal of $9 million. With the early generous support by friends and family – and the our sisters, and with the inspiring challenge of the Moran Family Foundation, the campaign achieved its Celebration Goal in the first 12 months of active fundraising. We are already more than halfway to the $1 million our Challenge Goal represents!
The bold faith that has led us to come out from under the tremendous burden of the current motherhouse and build a more suitable residence is the same bold faith that leads us to invite others to share in the life and mission of the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland through their support of the Bold Faith Campaign. Merici Crossings is expected to be ready to welcome our sisters in fall 2018.
Last week, trees were removed from the median on Fairmount Boulevard. This was necessary in order to connect to the sewer system. We will be planting one tree for every tree removed when the project is complete.
This week, activity on the site picks up as the foundation work has begun in earnest!
