Drawing Near

December 8, is just around the corner. If you've ever moved into a new home and decided to have a house warming party on move in day then you have some idea of how we feel.
Lots of details still to be addressed but things are moving along well. It is exciting to see it all coming together.
Just a note for any who are planning to attend the dedication liturgy which is set to begin at 7:00 pm on December 8. The flow of the liturgy has everyone gathered outside the front doors as Bishop Corrada formally accepts the building from the architect and builders, then we all enter together and begin the liturgy during which the building becomes a sacred space consecrated for Divine Worship.
The main thing to note is that we will all be outside so "getting a good seat ahead of time" will not really be a practical option. We will certainly accommodate everyone who has difficulty walking or standing for an extended time as best we can. We just wouldn't want people to come two hours early thinking they could "get a good seat" that way.
Please don't let the above discourage you from coming. All are welcome and we want as many as possible to join in this beautiful historic moment for the Catholic community of Tyler. You won't regret being a part of the congregation to witness the "baptism" of this beautiful building as she becomes a House of God consecrated for His Worship and dedicated to His glory.
