The history of St. Michael and All Angels, On Our Way, Rejoicing!, written by Dorothy Zoellner and Stuart Richardson, is in the late stages of editing and early stages of layout. We plan to publish the book in the summer of 2017. It will be a concise history of approximately 100 pages, including many evocative photographs from our diocesan archives, some never published before. Total costs of design and printing are estimated at $3,634.20 for 200 copies. Costs could go up slightly by the time we get it to press. Our aim is to sell 200 copies at $20 each, which would bring us a little extra funding for contingency and mailing to museums, libraries, etc.
The book will be printed on 100 lb. silk finish acid free paper stock which will do justice to the photos. It will also be 10% post-consumer recycled and FSC certified (from responsibly managed forests). It will be an informative and beautiful record and keepsake. Buy one and get one for a friend! Or, if you would like to contribute to the printing costs, buy one and donate another $20 for the printing of a second copy. (This second $20 would be tax receiptable.) A sign-up sheet for the book is available now until Easter. Please make sure to reserve your copy or copies as soon as possible. Thanks!
