Paplin Historic Church Restoration & Preservation

Friends of Paplin, Inc, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, was newly formed to repair, restore, and preserve the historic Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church which was built in 1882 by Polish immigrants.  Closure of the church several years ago has limited the funds available for local residents to keep the Church and property in good repair.  The organization is committed to preserving this important part of history that has ties to many families in the area.  Several short term patches have already began and the organization is thankful for any help you can give!
The funds generated will go directly to Friends of Paplin, Inc.
