Parish Capital Campaign

Greetings;

The Patriots Won the AFC Championship! We are going to the Super Bowl!

Okay, please join us this Tuesday and Thursday for the informative Catholic video by Bishop Barron series titled: The Pivotal Players. Tuesday we will show the video on St. Catherine of Sienna and Thursday, Bl. John Henry Newman. We will learn a bit about them, and how they have influenced the Church. It Begins at 6PM in the St. Anne Conference Room in the Church and ends at 7:30PM. It’s free, with snacks and coffee provided.

The Parish Capital Campaign is going strong. The parish is having this 3 year Capital Campaign to help replenish the expenses we incurred while fixing the front of the church. The completed project included the following: the Steeple water repairs, the Bell restoration and automation, exterior stain glass window protection glass with vents, the installation of the new elevator, new handicapped side ramp with automated door, removal of the long cement ramp, new granite steps with pavers, landscaping with lighting, and the new entryway with stairs leading into the hall from the front doors. This enormous project greatly improved the structure of the church, as well as made our church handicap accessible friendly. The elevator alone is a magnificent thing to have, especially for the many parishioners and visitors who use it. As I say: It’s only a sprained ankle away, from any one of us, needing to use it!
So, if you haven’t done so, please consider prayerfully making a pledge toward our parish’s financial stability. Cards are located near the mountain in the church and in the pews. “Thank you” to all who have stretched themselves in making a pledge toward the Parish Capital Campaign. I know that the Good Lord will abundantly bless you for your generosity.

You may have noticed, I will be distributing Holy Communion on the left side of the Altar looking out toward the pews. Not a big deal to many, but for some, major change! LOL!

In Meet the Flock, this week and last, we featured Ms. Paula King. She is our Coordinator of Faith Formation/Education in the parish, and Chairperson of the Parish Pastoral Council. We are so fortunate to have such a talented, organized, wonderful, selfless person in such leadership roles, here in the parish! Please read her write-up located as an insert in the bulletin and learn a bit about Paula. “Thank you” to Ms. Denise Rush for sharing her talented writing skills in telling Ms. King’s story!

May you have a blessed week, and for those who ski, lots of powder!
Fr. Kneeland
P.S. The Super Bowl is Sunday, February 3rd at 6:30PM LA Rams and the New England Patriots! Go Pats!
