The diocese has accepted the project proposal; demolition and framing of the new window has begun.
Next step: Fabrication and installation of window frames and clear 1” outside windows. (Taking approximately 3 months)
* St. Charles wrote the first Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The exterior windows will be 1” thermal pane, which would help on savings of cooling and heating costs for the church. In the course of 10 years, the window will pay for itself!
Memorials and dedications are most welcome.
Please place the name of the memorial or dedication on your envelope. A plaque will be made with the memorial/dedication and placed in an area close to the window.
Checks may be made out to St. Charles Borromeo Church with “Special Projects Fund or Memorial Window” on the memo line.
Mail your donation to St. Charles Borromeo Church, PO Box 128, Whitefish, MT 59937.
The estimated cost of the window — $225,000

(City of Whitefish [building permit], structural engineer and window framing.)
Thus far, we have collected $245,000 of estimated cost for the window.
