Priory Campaign: the building we wish to buy stands at the rear of the car park, where the original St Mary’s school built by Pugin used to be. It comprises of three separate units, of which so far we can afford to buy only two. We urgently need benefactors (or investors) 1) to help us secure the third unit and 2) to endow us with a stable monthly income for the upkeep of the new building(s). Our charitable status exempts us from stamp duty. The purchase cost is £80k per floor (i.e. for 79.31 square meters, or 853 square feet) to use as office, or to convert into a flat (we are awaiting confirmation of cost all included).
We still have a great opportunity to create a dynamic Catholic hub around our beautiful Pugin church!
Wherever you live, please email Fr Rector if you can donate (or invest) money: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ask Our Lady for her urgent intervention in the Priory Campaign as a decision should be made soon. God bless you.
