Dear Friends of Butler Catholic:

What a year 2020 has been!   Between the coronavirus pandemic, the political environment, and the damage to nature through fires and flooding,  there is turmoil every way we turn.  It seems every time we turn around, another situation arises that tests the strength of our faith, our patience and even our morals.  This very turmoil is what makes Catholic Education vital today and going forward into the future.

Butler Catholic School is a vibrant and faith-filled learning community dedicated to helping students grow academically, spiritually, emotionally, morally, and physically. We strive to educate the whole child while helping them find the inner strength they will need to navigate the “real” world when it’s time.  The students of today are our future leaders of tomorrow!

In recent years, we have begun the refurbishment of our building.  New windows, partial new flooring, updated roofing, refurbishment of the student bathrooms, and repointing of the brickwork have all been completed.   At this stage, we turn to a few more major projects, including new heating throughout the building, and new electrical.  These two crucial systems are original to the building, and do not meet the demands of today’s educational needs.   Starting in the summer of 2021, we will begin a multi-year project to complete this work.  In order for this multi-million dollar project to be a successful venture, we need your help and support.

Will you please consider an investment in the future of Butler Catholic School by contributing to our Annual Appeal?  Gifts of any size truly help, making impact for many generations to come. We are indeed deeply grateful for them!

We have been blessed with an anonymous donor that has created a $50,000 matching challenge in conjunction with this year’s Annual Appeal, in our quest to raise as much money as possible to start the upgrades to our electrical and mechanical systems. 

All donations made between November 15, 2020 and December 31, 2020 will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000.   Can you help us turn that $50,000 into $100,000?

Donations can be made online at  https://www.butlercatholic.org/giving/donate-online/ or can be dropped off/mailed to Butler Catholic School 515 E. Locust St.  Butler, PA 16001.   If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Dudley dudleyk@butlercatholic.org, or call our School Office 724-285-4276.

Please know that your contribution is received with our deepest gratitude and a promise of special remembrance in our daily prayers. The weekly vigil light that burns by our chapel’s tabernacle is lit for your intentions. May our Provident God surround you with His very special blessing, filling your lives with His loving peace.

 

Gratefully,

Sister John Ann Mulhern
