Generating Needed Building Funds



In January 1923, Father Kubelbeck introduced the envelope system of raising money for church expenses. Since the parish had not yet built a rectory for their priest, this helped raise $8,000 to make this happen. In December, with Father Kubelbeck moving into a permanent residence, now only the school needed to be built to which the congregation now numbering about 400 unanimously gave its consent. The cost of building it, however, would require $45,000 ($429,000 in today’s dollars).
