From the Pastor's Desk - September 29, 2013

Dear Parishioners,
Just a reminder: the Archbishop's Annual Appeal has begun. You should have received information on the Appeal and a pledge card in the mail. If you did not, materials about the Appeal will be available here at the church once these are received from the Archdiocese in the next couple of weeks. You can return your pledge card here at church or mail it directly to the Archdiocese. The Annual Appeal supports many programs and ministries in our Archdiocese, especially the services provided by the various archdiocesan agencies. On behalf of Archbishop Lucas, I thank you for your generous support of the Annual Appeal again this year.

I know that some have been wondering about the status of the Religious Education building project. Vrana Construction has been chosen for the general contractor. We are waiting on approval of the construction contract by the Archdiocese and for the completion of Vrana's review of the architectural plans to determine any cost-saving items that might be possible. It is my hope and prayer, and that of the parish and finance councils, that we can present to the parish the completed plans in October and, then, get started with construction. I wish I could make the process go faster, but thoroughness and coordination of all involved obviously takes a lot of time as we all have experienced. Please continue to keep the project in your prayers.

God bless you,  Fr. Gutowski
