Choose just one of Matthew Kelly's "game-changers" and practice it for one year:
- Read the Gospels for 15 minutes every day for one year, or
- Go to Confession once per month for one year, or
- Listen during Mass to the one thing Jesus wants me to work on this week, write it in my Mass Journal, and revisit it during prayer throughout the week.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As promised in my previous letter, the porcelain tiles have arrived for our new sanctuary floor. The installation of the new flooring is scheduled for June 20-30.
During the installation period, we will have the daily Masses in the Adoration chapel. The weekend Masses for June 25-26 will be in the church, as we expect that the installers will have finished the main platform of the sanctuary. In our plans, it's only this weekend that we will have the "Excuse our Dust" sign.
I beg your pardon for the inconvenience some of you will experience during this time, but I assure that we will have a beautiful sanctuary for our church.
Rev. Henri Tshibambe, your brother
I hope that you have had the chance to take a look at the Parish Hall flooring. The refurbished Hall is attractive and beautiful. Thank you to all those who, through our 2015 Sundancer Gala Paddle Raiser, have contributed to make this happen.
The next project dear to my heart is to make of our church sanctuary a clean, beautiful, and reverent place where the Sacrifice of the Lamb is offered every day. This dream will be made possible very soon, as our parish is very blessed to have received a substantial gift from the estate of a deceased parishioner; we will be using this gift to replace the flooring in the sanctuary. Because it is the center of our worship space, it is important that each element of the sanctuary is fitting for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; currently, our sanctuary carpeting shows many spots and stains. It is difficult to maintain when it comes to taking care of the crumbs from the Sacred Body. Thanks to God for the estate gift, because we could not afford to do this with our offertory monies. Also, the cost of the porcelain tile has been significantly reduced for us by a member of our 10:00 AM choir. I am grateful.
Information on the logistical details for the new flooring installation will be published in future bulletins. If you see a specific need and would like to honor a loved one through a gift in their name, please call me and we can talk about the opportunity. I am most grateful for the generosity of our parishioners!
Rev. Henri Tshibambe
