This week we come to another stage of preparation to use our new Pastoral Center and Knight Hall. The building will contain (among other things) thirteen rooms that will be available for ministry meetings and activities. The rooms will all be numbered for easy reference and location, but we want to identify the rooms in another, more meaningful way as well. We want to name each room after a saint!
This is where you come in. You, the parishioners of St. Edward the Confessor and San Felipe de Jesús, are invited to submit the names of five saints you would like to have represented in our naming of the rooms. Each household may submit up to five saints’ names, and on August 21st we will tally up how many “votes” each saint gets. In this way we will determine the thirteen most popular saints; their names will go on the thirteen rooms we have available.
This is a good time for you to discuss with your family the possible saints whose names you will submit. I can imagine great conversations in which people discuss their favorite saints and the reasons why they are favorites. The internet is filled with good sites that give the lives of the saints, so there is no lack of reference material. Please submit your list of saints to Rosy Stock, our Parish Services Manager, at email@example.com. Rosy will keep track of all submissions, and I am really looking forward to August 21st, when we will be able to give meaningful names to the rooms you will be using for many years to come.
