Month of Work
Cheshire LC seminarians need your help to complete their summer maintenance projects

Seminarians from Cheshire during Month of Work

Each July, seminarians at the Cheshire, Connecticut seminary spend the month working on urgent maintenance projects around the house.  Last year’s projects included a massive tiling of the foyer, remodel of the small dining room and building a new retaining wall leading to the main entrance of the seminary. (To watch the YouTube video of last year’s projects, click here.)

Following their finals this month, the seminarians will begin their “Month of Work.”  They will be undertaking such projects as renovating the chapel, the auditorium and stripping the gym floor as well as other maintenance projects that help keep the Cheshire seminary looking great.

Some of the 2013 projects and their estimated costs include:

  • Put in new front walkways $7,000
  • Resurfacing driveway $5,000
  • Replace chapel doors $5,000
  • Repair courtyard doors $3,000
  • Install fountain in courtyard $2,500
  • Foyer: install drop-ceiling and create garden $2,000
  • Install handicap ramp $2,000
  • Lay tile in chapel oratories $1,000
  • Re-varnish gym floor, $1,000
  • Paint: hallways, rooms, exterior doors $500

“They have the time and the talent to undertake these projects, but they need a little ‘treasure’ to buy the materials needed!” said Mike Eckel, Cheshire Development Director. “Please consider sending us a gift
