Save St. Mary's Newport Church

St. Mary's Newport Church is a small rural Catholic Church with deep Czecheslovakian heritage that was built around 1876.  The Church is in dire need of repairs to the roof & siding to insure that this great historical treasure can be preserved for future generations.  The roof needs immediate repairs so we are trying to raise funds as soon as possible.  The Church has had deep meaning to members of  the community and would be missed greatly, if it were to be torn down as opposed to being repaired.  Any assistance in helping us reach our goal to preserve the Church would be greatly appreciated.
