The Residence Update
August 7, 2023

Our Parish House will soon become "The Residence" which will be home to serving three individuals with special needs. Much work was needed to prepare the house for this, and although the work is not complete, a great deal has been accomplished to date.


  • The entrance has been cleaned up, the siding power-washed and trash removed.

  • We removed a tree to clear power line interference.

  • We added mulch to the flower beds.

  • Cleaned the whole area.


  • As a safety measure, we added a spring-loaded hinged half-door to the entrance to the basement.

  • We installed new flooring in all the bedrooms.

  • We completely renovated the main level bathroom with turbo toilet, handrails, soap dish, shampoo slot and a three drawer cabinet (each resident gets his own drawer).

  • In the kitchen, we painted the pantry, added new hardware and repaired some drawers.


  • We painted the walls, ceiling and floor.

  • Repaired the doors.

  • Upgraded the lower level bathroom with a turbo toilet, towel shelf, new shower curtain and window shade.

  • In the laundry area: we painted the floor, replaced the faucet and cleaned and painted the shelves.

We have a new address!

Previously, the Parish House was part of church property and had the same address (23225 Gill). Now it has it's own - 23223 Gill. We added a mailbox with this address. 

Oops! The Post Office hasn't quite caught up, but we'll sort that out.
