Church Rebuild Update: October
With the Golden Jubilee successfully behind us and all the interior work complete on Ascension Hall the design team is focused on completing the design for the new drop off and sidewalk modifications. Our goal is to ensure we have compliant accessibility and adequate space outside the doors to Ascension Hall for everyone to safely gather before and after mass.
Plans continue to progress nicely, and we are very close to doing an unveiling at another town hall meeting. We had hoped to have something by the end of this month, but it looks like it will be closer to mid-October. It is important that before we show the progress on the design that we ensure we are within budget. Therefor we are asking for a little more patience as we make sure we don’t miss a step and the information presented is accurate and doable.
What we can share is that it will be worth the wait.
The community support and commitment of many of our parishioners has been overwhelming. Donations and pledges have continued to pour in. Many have asked for the privilege to underwrite the cost of specific items and features of the new church. In response, Father Reggie is putting together a list of potential items which need a sponsor. Items like stain glass windows, stations of the cross, alter appointments, statues, paintings, etc. He hopes to have the list out before Thanksgiving for anyone wishing to make that special year end donation.
As always, Father greatly appreciates your prayers and support and asked everyone to keep the faith as we move through these uncharted waters.
More updates to come.
Peace & Blessings
