Scope of the Project:
The wiring in the church is the original wiring that was installed when Notre Dame was built in 1956. The wiring needs to be replaced, as do the existing light fixtures, for reasons of safety, energy efficiency, and strategic planning.
Challenge and Cost:
The estimated cost to complete the project is $200,000.
A short capital campaign is being conducted starting in May and concluding by the end of June. This
short timeframe is necessary so the work can be conducted over the summer and be completed by
the beginning of September.
