Dear Father Adam,


                        To follow-up my recent e-mail to you, I am writing to confirm that the Archdiocese has approved the commencement of the St. Eugene de Mazenod church project utilizing Jomar Development Corporation as contractor. A letter of intent leading to a contract is now being negotiated with Jomar.


                        We appreciate the cooperation we have received from you and your leadership team which has resulted in reducing the overall budget for the project to $13.8 million. The parish has raised $7.8 million to date and is committed to raising another $3.2 million, hopefully by the end of construction. The Archdiocese has committed close to $6.0 million to the project in the form of land, mortgage and rectory. This is the largest amount the Archdiocese of Toronto has committed to any new parish.


                        We appreciate the patience your people have shown during the planning phase of this project and we trust that our commitment of time and resources is seen as a testimony of our regard for your community.


                                                                        With my best wishes.


                                                                        Yours sincerely,



                                                                        John P. McGrath

                                                                        Chancellor for Temporal Affairs.
