This study revealed how lay members of Catholic Madarajima Church maintained and conserved the church building and other facilities. Since 2002, the laity restored church building and refurbished parish cemetery. These projects were materialized because of the followings: the laity established a democratic system to manage the parish and procure funds for property maintenance; parish council members played the role of project manager throughout planning and execution; carpenters, who were also the lay members of the parish, played the role of technical supervisor and contracted construction works with minimum fee; other laity volunteered in transporting building materials and construction works.
