Repair OUR Roof
We need your help
St. Thomas Episcopal Church has been a presence in the Bath community since 1826. Since the cornerstone of the present church was placed 150 years ago, St. Thomas has been a beloved landmark, and the oldest church building, in the village of Bath. It remains one of the few still standing churches of the architect Henry Dudley, who designed a “stone building of neo-Gothic design including a clerestory, with nave and aisles, and chapel attached.”
We now need help to maintain this community and architectural treasure. The roof of this historic church is leaking and must be replaced this year, or we face serious structural damage to the building. Thanks to careful financial planning by our vestry and generous giving by our parishioners, we have raised over $400,000 for the cost for a new roof and will begin repair work in mid-September. However, we still have a shortfall of $100.000. So, we’re asking for your help to complete the project.
We invite you to sponsor one more roofing squares for $1000. Each roofing square is 100 square feet. In addition to receiving our thanks, we’ll list you as a contributor. If you’d like, you can make your gift in memory or honor of a friend or loved one. Your gift may also be tax-deductible.
