Church Renovation Updates

Day 139

12-07-2018

The tile is almost done on the sanctuary. The carpeting on the stairs is almost done. The smaller side is already and it looks so nice. The lift part of the elevator was installed. The bathrooms are working with running water and a beautiful door. The stenciling is all complete with the final shell being painted under the choir loft. The Baptismal font will be placed directly underneath it. We have beautiful new lights hanging through out the church. The railing outside has been installed. The pews are getting installed but no picture. You will just have to wait on that view until the 16th. Everything is coming together. Do not forget that tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation in honor of our Church's namesake. Also, keep selling your raffle tickets! Have a great weekend!

Day 137

12-05-2018

The carpeting is looking good. She is working on laying carpet in the back of church going out to the landing. Sims Sounds is installing some of the sound system. The fans are installed in the confessionals. They are prepping the floor in Hansen Hall getting it ready for the carpet. We have doors on the bathrooms. They will be ready for Dec 16th.

FROM OUR PASTOR

Second Week of Advent

12-09-2018Father Prince Raja

This season of Advent heralds the coming of Emmanuel, "God with us". It is the time we realize when our God comes to earth to take on human form and live on earth just as we live. He does it as he shares his life and love with us. When God shares his love with us he invites us to share our love with Him and with others. Advent is the time of waiting as we prepare ourselves to welcome the God who became man and who by example showed us how we too should be able to live like him for others. Advent means waiting. We wait for someone we love and we long to meet that person.
