We are continuing our Capital Campaign to raise the funds to pay off the debt associated with the building of our new pastoral center. We have 23 acres of land and a beautiful church all paid for because of the sacrifices of our parishioners and the generosity of so many people throughout this country and beyond. Recognizing that our needs are critical, and planning well into the future, we have provided additional space for the faith formation of our children and adults and for ministering to the poor among us better. We have built a hall to gather and celebrate the good times and support each other during the sad times in the life of our parish but also to have it available to the wider community.
We have named the learning center after Sr. Philomena Fogarty, a Franciscan Missionary of Mary who spent most of her life in education and was the administrator of our faith community when it was a Mission of St. Anne Parish in Columbus. Her life was tragically taken from us in 2003. She was called the “Mother Teresa” of Harris County because of her work for the poor. Parish volunteers continue her ministry with the children and the poor that desperately need these new facilities.
Our new pastoral center includes: the Sister Philomena Learning Center, the Community Outreach Center, the Parish Hall and the parish administrative offices. The cost of the project was funded mostly through the generosity of our parishioners and benefactors from near and far, and also a loan from the Diocese of Savannah. We would like to liquidate this debt as soon as possible.
The words of the only prayer that Jesus gave us include: “thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”.
I invite you to help us with the funding of this great project that we might continue the work of God and answer His prayer. Together we can make these new facilities a benefit not only to our our parish, but to the community at large as well.
Thank you and may God bless you.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend J. Ronald Madden, Pastor
