OLPH has survived fires and many other challenges in its over 125-year history. We now face a new challenge. We are asking for your help in making our historic buildings handicap accessible to everyone. We do not to want to turn people away when they are not able to manage the front steps of our old buildings.
The addition of a new ramp and deck will finally enable all parishioners and visitors to enter both the chapel and our community building, the Fr. Schultz House. Using built-up earth, concrete, and local green stone will both minimize maintenance expenses and preserve our traditional appearance, as required by the Historic Preservation Commission of Manitou Springs.
Additionally, an updated restroom that meets with A.D.A. (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements will be added to the Fr. Schultz House.
This is a big undertaking for our small church. Building the deck, creating a new entrance into the chapel, and remodeling the bathroom to meet ADA standards will cost our little community $166,000. But with your help, we hope to be able to welcome everyone into our church community.
