The City of Windsor is coming through with some big funding for the Assumption Church restoration effort.

Council has agreed to commit $250,000 to help pay for the new copper roof on the church.

These funds were previously allocated back in 2010, but with the building in disrepair the Diocese of London closed the 174-year-old church before the money could be accessed.

Assumption's Paul Mullins says the next phase of the restoration includes plaster and paint at a cost of $2.25-million.

The entire project is expected to cost between $14-million and $20-million.

The church re-opened its doors in September after being closed for five years due to its poor condition.
