12-23-2018Weekly Reflection Rev. Kenneth Brighenti

Dear Parishioners,

I have an update on the Permanent Adoration Chapel plans. Our architect, Mr. Peter Cucci has drafted the plans for three contractors to bid. I have just received all three of the required bids. I submitted them to the Diocese Board of Consultors for them to choose the contractor. So we are pleasantly movingly along with this project. We have collected $125,000.00. to date.
