National fund selects Nashua church for preservation grant
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The National Fund for Sacred Places has selected a Nashua church to participate in a preservation grant program.
Nashua’s St. Mary & Archangel Michael Coptic Orthodox Church earned a spot alongside 13 other congregations. The Nashua Telegraph reports other churches selected include one of the oldest European-designed buildings in the American West, three symbolically important congregations of the Civil Rights Era and a church designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The Philadelphia-based National Fund for Sacred Places will offer planning grants and training to the congregations, ranging from urgently needed repairs to maintenance that will ensure the congregations’ future preservation.
The church plans to use the grant to restore the structures of its main building.
