As you know, we like to observe “celebration moments,” special milestones as we progress toward the completion of our Pastoral Center and Knight Hall. The next of these moments will take place at the end of June or beginning of July, but we will prepare for it now. The celebration moment will be the placing of religious medals under the concrete (or pavers) at the entrances to the new building. There are three entrances for us to bless in this way: the main entrance to the lobby, adjacent to the drive aisle; the entrance off the bluff; and at the foot of the stairs that lead to the terrace.
We are not looking for new medals necessarily; this is a time when you can contribute old religious medals that you do not need. The Miraculous Medal, medals of St. Benedict, St. Joseph, St. Michael, St. Dymphna, and other saints whose intercession is important to you are all very welcome. Whether they are previously used and blessed medals or not, all of them will be blessed before we put them at the entrances. This is a way to bless all of our comings and goings at the new building.
You may drop off the medals at our Parish Office anytime that it is open. We ask that you do this no later than June 29. Thank you for taking part in this special celebration moment!
