Area parish raising funds for church repairs

Written by

ORONO - Some local churches have been in need of some major structural repairs. In response, a campaign has been launched to fund the repair costs.

The Rebuild the Church campaign's goal is to raise $3.5 million for the four churches of the Parish of the Resurrection of the Lord. So far, $600,000 has been raised.


All of the parish's churches need roof and equipment repairs but the church with the biggest need is the Newman Center in Orono.


"So this particular building needs some major renovations to be more useful, to be more efficient, to be a better home for those who come here. The other churches, while also needing significant repairs, need less than this one," said Father Bill Labbe of the Parish of the Resurrection of the Lord.
