A letter in Sunday's bulletin details the staff/council recommendation to sell Saint Vincent's:
"That All Saints Parish accepts the proposal from Providence Housing Development Corporation to purchase the St. Vincent de Paul campus for the minimum offer of $350,000 subject to the following contingencies to be further defined by Deacon Dean Condon:
1. Diocesan approval.
2. Commitment to use property for Senior Housing.
3. Salvage rights for religious items.
4. Allow Providence Housing at least two attempts to get financing with final date of December 2013.
5. Price agreement based on average of two appraisals with minimum purchase price of $350,000."
This now will kick off the appeal process to our bishop. Details at tomorrow's meeting at the Union Hall, 2 p.m. The bishop is traveling down here next Friday, by the way, to celebrate mass with the children at 10:30 a.m. in St. Mary's Church. All parishioners are invited.
Remember, "Potter isn't selling, Potter's buying."
