SS. Cyril & Methodius Future Parish Rectory
When we decided to demolish the old rectory, we anticipated replacing it with a second floor residence on the Parish Life Building. As prudent stewards of our resources, we gave up that option because we found it too expensive but never abandoned the idea to build a suitable rectory for our parish.
Since the Parish Life Building has been completed, we now return to the idea of the rectory. The little house (23ft x 37ft) at 541 Ledochowski Street will be demolished because the renovation of it is not feasible ($100,000-$150,000 estimated by our Parish contractors).
The dimensions of the future rectory will be 40ft x 77ft, one level, senior friendly, with a two-car garage and a partial basement. It will include two living quarters with accommodations to house a guest priest and a common kitchen/dining/living area. The total cost of the new construction is $300,000. Our plans have received the final approval from Blase Cardinal Cupich, and the General Contractor (Kasper Construction) has been selected and approved as well by the Archdiocese.
We are asking for your support in funding this project which is the last missing piece to complete our campus and to secure clergy presence for our parish. Please consider a $1,000 donation to the Rectory Building Fund. Please pray about it and show your care and love for your priests by donating.
