The above picture is of our church showing the Narthex to the north (right side). As you may already know, we have been in a Capital Campaign since 2010 called Gateway Into Worship to build this addition. We are still in the process of raising funds in order to realize this final stage of our project, Phase III. The first two phases dealt with much needed repairs and the interior church renovation.
The Narthex will serve many purposes. First and foremost, it will house our new Baptismal Font. It will also serve as a place of fellowship after Mass so that we don't have to be outside in the heat of South Texas or in the cold or rain. Overflow congregants during Holy Days can also participate in worship comfortably from there. It will have a Bridal / Choir Robe Room and additional Restrooms and Water Fountains. It will also provide a better space to light a candle to The Sacred Heart of Jesus.
To make this project happen, as always, I ask for your prayers. Great things happen with the power of prayer!
Also, we need your financial assistance! Every dollar helps. Please consider a sizable donation or pledge to our Gateway Campaign.
Please feel free to call me at my office with regard to any aspect of this project.
We will be presenting an 8 Part Video Bible Study featuring Jeff Cavins.
This study provides the easiest way to understand the Bible. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible makes the complex simple. It helps you uncover the story woven throughout Scripture, so that you can get the "big picture" of the Bible and understand what it's all about. The Bible is a story about the Father's unfailing love for you, a love that you are now called to share with others.
