DIRECT MAIL CAMPAIGN
Help update our mailing list. Our goal is to let everyone know of our exciting plans to rehab the old Cathedral and the former Methodist Church by mailing a free gift card, telling our story, and asking for donations.
Please email your stories to and they will be placed here. Help is needed also to do our research in the Library and in the Diocesan Library so we can document the history of the old Cathedral and former Methodist Church lest we forget.
The Minnesota State Historical Society has been so gracious to us as we struggled through reuse planning, and architectural planning. Now we are completing the Roofing project with help from a large Legacy grant. Already the two sacristy roofs have been replaced, and work on the steeples will be finished this spring of 2021. These repairs will protect the structure for another 100 years.
Letting the businesses, clubs and the kids know about the reuse of the old Cathedral and former Methodist Church as spaces for them to go, meet friends and play ensuring the future of Crookston.
FINDING THE BEST CONTRACTORS
We want to use the best local contractors. Those not afraid to suggest an innovative way to solve historic issues. Our windows will need to be restored. Perhaps there is a woodworker right here in Crookston who may want to teach and lead volunteers in repair, and resetting of glass to open up the windows to the world.
FUN ARTS FUNDRAISERS
You can help plan Fundraisers. We are looking for a used food kitchen trailer. If you have one we can use or you can donate or sell to us, let us know! If you like to plan fundraising events, we need you now!
