Strengthening the foundation of Lielvarde church

Lielvarde church was consecrated only in 1992. It is located on a hill with embankment from three sides. Unfortunately, the church construction was carried out very superficially, without proper project management and required technical standards. Therefore, it is urgently needed to strengthen church foundation and walls. The total cost of this project is 50 000 EUR.

Salaspils church repair 

On 10 November 1996 parishioners celebrated the first Mass at the newly built church. Unfortunately, during the construction many mistakes were done due to lack of specific knowledge. Steel constructions are not properly constructed, but roof, walls and floor of the building are not sufficiently insulated, there is no ventilation and appropriate heating system. As a result, it is cold inside the church in winter (-18 C) and hot in summer (+38 C). In such circumstances the parishioners often have health problems. The total cost of reconstruction project is 295 541 EUR.
