We recently received the following thank you note from Immaculate Conception Church in the Diocese of Tulsa. 

Dear Catholic Extension,

We thank you sincerely for the assistance given by the Catholic Extension donors to our small church community. With our $5600.00 grant, we were able to extend our porch at Immaculate Conception Church in Hugo, Oklahoma.

After the completion of the project, people can now drive easily to the main church door to drop off their loved ones, and funeral vehicles can come closer to the entrance. Most importantly, during the winter and rainy days parishioners can come inside the church safely.

This project also helps the people who come to us for help. In this rural part of Eastern Oklahoma, there are many who come to us almost daily for material assistance such as gas, food, medical and water bills, travel, etc. This renovation helps to welcome those in need as a vital Catholic presence in this part of the state.

With kind regards and prayers,
Fr. Joseph Chirayath
