Building a Legacy: On the Rock
Facility Project Update
Highlights for the week:
  • The Statue of Saint Peter, the Virgin Mary, and the art piece for the Unborn have been moved. They are all safely next to the construction trailer, where they will remain until the completion of the Plaza in the Spring.
  • The interior wall layout was finalized. This may not seem like much, but in a renovation, it is important to maintain the integrity of the design and be able to move existing pipes into wall cavities.
  • Underground plumbing for the Baptismal Font passed inspection.
  • Primary control points were established.
  • Footing excavation for the new Gathering Space and Chapel started.
  • The paperwork was filed for separate natural gas service to the Rectory.  We are certain that Father Fabio is especially pleased with this as on two different occasions, without compliant, Father has been without hot water.
  • As a reminder, Water Main work will begin along St. Peter Drive soon.

We are excited to see the activity around the worksite.          
Construction Committee
Frutelli Tutti
On Fraternity and Social Friendship

"In these tumultuous and challenging times of great social unrest, we very much need to embrace Pope Francis’ beautiful teachings detailed in Fratelli Tutti. The Holy Father points to fraternity, dialogue and social friendship as the way to build a better, more just and peaceful world, with a resounding ‘no’ to war and global indifference."
~ Bishop Bradley
From Ascension Presents, Fr. Mark-Mary, CFR discusses how to really pray the Rosary and go deeper than the external mechanics. Primarily it’s about relationship and not simply recitation. Fr. Mark-Mary explains three aspects of the Rosary on which we can contemplate: 1-The person of Jesus Christ; 2-The words of the prayers, which are Scriptural; and 3-The Mysteries, which cover the whole life of Jesus.
