GIFTS TO ST. MARY'S SOULS IN HARMONY CAMPAIGN


Throughout St. Mary’s Church 188-year-old history, music has been a mainstay in its repertoire of liturgical services for parishioners, visitors and the public. The Church’s Music Ministry Program helps to fulfill its mission: To continue the work of Jesus Christ through Worship, Education, Stewardship and Service. As a prominent National Historic Landmark, St. Mary’s Church is distinguished from all other churches in Rhode Island and known throughout the world as among the nation’s treasures.  

After nearly 60 years since it was first installed in the choir loft, the Church’s Casavant pipe organ is now in dire need of restoration and refurbishing to perform at its peak magnificence. In addition, the choir loft must be reconstructed for the organ to be properly positioned in the space and reveal the walls and the beautiful stained glass window. This work will allow our growing Music Ministry to continue to thrive and provide the appropriate space for multiple formations of choirs, soloists and instrumentalists to enhance and expand St. Mary’s public musical performances and educational programs.

To accomplish our goals of preserving and protecting the remarkable beauty of our Church and to further spread the Gospel of God through music and fellowship, we invite you to invest in the future of St. Mary’s Church. There are several ways you can support our work.

UNRESTRICTED GIVING
Unrestricted giving supports the refurbishment of our organ to its magnificent splendor and the restoration of the choir loft. Your gift may be made in remembrance of a special occasion such as your wedding, a family members’ wedding or baptism of a child or adult. Or gifts can be given in honor of or in memory of a family member, loved one or friend. You will be recognized for your generosity on our St. Mary’s Souls in Harmony donor plaque and acknowledged in other special ways. For a gift of $2,500 or more you will receive a special memento that is crafted from the original pipes of the Casavant organ.
