The contract sum of the said job (main building) is RM800,000 (RM Eight Hundred Thousand Only) and is expected to be completed six months from the date of possession of site. The total amount, including extensions and external work would come to some RM1.1 million.
The local community has been busy soliciting for funds through the various BECs and generous individual members. Members of the community are committed to raise RM500,000.
The old hall was taken down in 2011. After a lapse of some three years, the new hall is eventually to be constructed. 
Fr Jasery said, "The amount to be raised is definitely enormous. It 's tough but not impossible. We need to pray. He will prepare a way for us but as a community we need to find the way together. Never surrender before we begin."
L-R : Henry Wong, Bishop Julius, Sunny Ng and Fr Jasery
Bishop Julius urged all parties to work hard in realizing the targeted amount so that the hall could be built as scheduled. The prelate went on to say, "The hall belongs to all. Therefore the fund raising should not be looked upon as a burden but a responsibility."
