As our parish begins the second year of our 3-year God's Work Through Our Hands capital campaign, we can all be very thankful of the progress thus far. As of September 30, 2019, we have collected 66% of the total amount pledged.
The Strategic Planning Committee and I are very pleased to report the following steps have been taken to move the project forward during the previous quarter:
After the contracts were approved by the diocese and signed, our architect and liturgical consultant presented their initial concept drawings of the interior renovations to the Strategic Planning Committee and myself on August 6.
Their drawings were “fine-tuned” and along with a draft budget were presented at a follow-up meeting on September 26. We anticipate that at least one additional meeting will be needed to finalize the project at which time, drawing and associated information will be presented to parishioners.
Thank you for your prayerful and financial support as well as your patience as the project draws ever closer to fruition. Please remember that sacrificial campaign pledges need to be over and above your regular weekly offering in order to ensure the ongoing success of our daily ministry. Thank you. In Christ,
Campaign Prayer All powerful Father, source of all beauty and truth, You have built the Church on the Apostles and have made your Son the unshakable cornerstone. We have discerned your will and You have blessed us with the means to become your co- workers in the Sacred Heart campus revitalization. Our desire is to spread your kingdom to all Catholics, former Catholics, and non-Catholics throughout Gladwin County. May the Holy Spirit guide our daily progress to its successful fruition as we joyfully and sacrificially do your work through our hands. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer of the Week O Lord our God, we know that you have planned for us more than we can ask for, or can even imagine. Quiet our fears and guide us in any concerns we may have, that we may know and experience the abundant life that our Savior Jesus Christ calls us to. Be with us as we make the commitments of sacrifice and effort which will lead us into paths you have placed before us. We ask this in the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen
We Would Love to Have You Visit Soon!
