Honoring Our Past: Building Our Future Campaign
Plans are being finalized to begin work on some field work with roadway and parking this late spring/early
summer. We have $400,000 now in cash and need another $300,000 in cash to begin. If you are interested,
now is the time to join us as we move forward with our campaign, Honoring Our Past: Building Our Future.
April 1-4 and April 8-10 during Advisory. We will have the pastors and priests of the area helping us at PND with Lenten Confessions. It is a great opportunity for our young people to live the words of Ash Wednesday, “Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.” Pope Francis recently said this about the Sacrament of Reconciliation, “Confession is an experience of love and mercy, not a sentencing court.” We truly believe and live it in this powerful Sacrament of Grace.
