Septic systems are not usually a favorite topic of conversation, but ours is 112 years old! Since it serves the Convent, St. Marguerite's Retreat House, and two employee residences it has reached the point where it is in critical and immediate need of replacement.
Estimated cost of replacement is $246,840.02 so we are hoping our generous donors can help us to raise the remaining $135,000 needed for the job.
It's easy to help!
