A Letter from Fr. Albert, Feb 10
Greetings in Christ,
As you know, over 50 years ago, our founding members established Holy Family. Since then the parish has served our faith community well. From baptisms, to confirmations, through wedding vows and funerals, Holy Family of Nazareth Catholic Church remains committed to its people.
We attribute our success to the vision exhibited by our leaders, those individuals who expressed a desire to create the Holy Family Community. Forward-thinking leadership encouraged parishioners to unite in building the church and school in 1965. That same faith-filled spirit led to the construction of a new sanctuary 35 years later.
Today we, our lay leadership and myself, envision steps we must make to ensure we continue the legacy established decades ago. The process of enacting these moves began by establishing a Building Committee in 2017 charged with reviewing our facilities. Their assessment revealed the need to address a few campus upgrades. We followed that decision by hiring an architect early last year. By June 2018 we identified a project manager.
Now our next step is to conduct a planning study – we need to know what you think of our plans. Thus, we hired the Steier Group, a national Catholic fundraising and development firm, to gather your feedback; their work will begin shortly.
You’ll hear much more about the project in the comings weeks, but I want to stress my desire for you to participate in the upcoming study. This is your faith home. You help shape who we are. We, your prayerful leadership, truly need to know your thoughts.
This study is an important step for Holy Family and I graciously ask that when the time comes, you share your thoughts.
Fr. Albert B. Becher, Pastor
