Come to the Dedication of Our Fantastic New Building
Our new Education & Activity Center is complete, and the moving from the old school to the new has begun. It will take the rest of the summer before things are complete.
Sunday, August 9, will be the grand opening and Dedication Day. Archbishop Jerome Listecki is very eager and curious to see our building, so he was glad to be asked to bless and dedicate the building. Plans for the day include:
Mass at 11:30 am
Dedication by the Archbishop at 1:00 p.m.
Refreshments, Music, Tours at 2:00 p.m.
The Mass is in church, and the dedication will be in the fantastic new gym. You will love it when you see it. It fills you with pride and joy just to walk in.
For a sneak peak at the new building, go to www.sfbeac.com. Thanks to Bob Schatzman for these fantastic shots (schatz) and visual history of the project. I believe on Dedication Day we will be viewing a video Bob has put together.
At the dedication, we’ll open by singing the National Anthem. It will be my honor to thank everybody for years of sweat, worry, and hard work. Then members of our Building Leadership Team will tell us about the building and the whole multi-year project. The archbishop will give an address, and will bless the building with holy water, assisted by the priests. We will close with a hymn, Sing A New Church Into Being, One in Faith and Love and Praise. This E&AC is a new church, a new school, a new beginning, a new day, a new promise of all that can be for those who believe. I might cry.
There will be cake and ice cream and tours of the fantastic new building, which will house four things:
1- Our Catholic School,
2- Our Christian Formation Program
3- Our Day Care, and
4- All Our Sports Programs.
Truly an Education & Activity Center.
As Catholics, we are encouraged to read Scripture,
especially focusing on the readings included in our liturgies.
