    We closed on the house last Friday! The deal was completed by about 1:30
    pm. We officially own a house now! Thanks be to God and to all of the Chi
    Rho alums who helped put this together.

    Do not give up on the fundraising and prayers though. We definitely need
    both - prayers most especially. As for funds, as anyone with a mortgage
    knows, paying extra on a loan helps immensely with bringing down the
    principal and paying the bank a lot less in interest. In our case, we can
    also lower the monthly mortgage payment significantly if we keep up the
    fundraising.

    Be on the lookout for upcoming cleanup projects or input for suggestion on
    improving the house.

  • Closing Date Dec. 5th!

    Dear Brothers,

    Hope the new liturgical season is treating you all well. I love Advent.

    In case you’re wondering about the house we’re buying, closing date is Dec.
    5th - that’s this Friday. So, keep the board and all of us in your prayers.
    That’s the only way we’ve ever been able to survive :)

    We do have a fundraising drive going. Please check chirhoalumni.com for
    updates. There’s even a cool fundraising thermometer on there. We need to
    get to a 15% downpayment on the 315,075 house plus a bit extra for closing
    costs and repairs. We currently have 40k of 55k raised. Please talk to God
    (and your spouse) to see how much you could help the alumni with this
    venture. The board would like to see every alum participate in some way in
    this venture that has been 13 years in the making.

    I’d like to give more regular updates to everyone on the status of the men
    at K-State and the alumni. For that purpose, we’ve added a better news feed
    to chirhoalumni.com which I will update frequently. If you like, you can
    also subscribe to these updates through
    feedburner:

    I haven’t made a facebook page yet, but that’s too hard.

    God bless,

  • Update on the House

    In case you were wondering, the closing date for the new house is Dec. 5th!
    That’s coming up quick. I placed a link to the brochure we’ve been passing
    out below.

    The most immediate item currently is the fundraising for the down payment.
    If you haven’t had a chance to think about contributing, now is the time!
    Whether you are able to contribute a lot or little is not as important as
    being able to be there for the foundation of this new phase in Chi Rho.
    (Especially since today’s Gospel was about the widow who gave everything
    she had).

    That being said, where are we in the fundraising process currently? The
    purchase price of the house was lowered to $315,025 due to repair issues.
    That makes the 15% down payment with closing costs and repairs: $55,104.
    Including the $20,000 we have saved, we have $39,000 pledged. That means we
    only have $16,104 left! Now is your turn.

    You will be receiving a phone call from one of the board members this week.
    Please consider being part of the foundation of this important new step. If
    you have a Knights of Columbus Council or Men’s Group at your parish,
    please let us know if you would be willing to ask them for help.

    Keep all of us in your prayers!

    El Presidente
    -Fr. David Voss
