MQH Fun For All Picnic August 21
Ministry of Care is an important part of Mary Queen of Heaven
Parish. This ministry reaches out to those in the community who
are unable to attend Mass but desire a connection to God and
neighbor through Holy Communion.  During our visits we have the
opportunity to show God’s love and compassion by our presence
and support of the homebound as well as their family. We have
several trained ministers who are willing to take the time to reveal
the caring nature of our parish to those may feel cut off from the
community. Please look for the brochures in back of church for
contact information. Just look for the Big Red Heart on the
cover!

In the service of Christ,
Deacon Tom

Capital Projects Update As of 6/30/2016
With the approach of the 2016 parish picnic, I am mindful of the fact that last year’s picnic was put on as a fundraiser for our building fund, as at that time there was some major work that needed to be done. Much has been accomplished over the past year to improve our facilities, thanks to your generous support. I am also thankful to Deacon Dave Ritter, our Business Manager, who worked tirelessly to coordinate these improvement projects and ensure their completion. I also give thanks for Les Otto and Herb Schwartz, who both volunteer their time to help us complete many needed maintenance activities around the parish.
Fr. Jason

OFFICE MOVE
The moving of the offices from the Rectory to the Parish Center/School were completed around September 1st 2015. The project cost the parish minimal amounts thanks to the volunteer efforts of many parishioners.

CAMPUS REHABILITATION INITIATIVE
Wifi Upgrade ($3,000)
The campus had a ‘quilt-work’ of WiFi equipment that couldn’t cover all the areas. We replaced the old system with a new system that covers the whole complex and allows for better connectivity for the RE classrooms, offices and HVAC systems.

Windows - School & Sacristy ($147,000)
The school was fitted with new windows, replacing 55 year oldbwindows. The original windows were not energy efficient and many would not close completely. On cold days the school rooms struggled to maintain heat above 60 degrees in the winter creating health concerns for anyone in them.

HVAC - School & Rectory ($189,000)
The failing window air conditioner units were replaced with an energy efficient HVAC system. The new system allows for targeted and scheduled air conditioning that will lower electric costs and guarantee a consistent level of cooling for the school. The new systemalso allows for supplemental heating in the fall and spring months; reducing the energy costs from the steam boiler system (which is still the main heating system for the school in deep winter).

Inner Security Door ($12,000)
A security door was installed in the school hallway to allow for better protection of the children in the Preschool and easier access to the meeting rooms. The doors have a keypad lock system similar to entry into the Parish Center.
