What you need to know from this weekend’s bulletin:
St. Joseph Statue Restoration Project – A message from Lynda Bautista – New
St. Joseph originated in our parish Our Lady of Hope in the Philippines. This statue of St. Joseph has been around for about 100 years. He is made of a solid wood.
St. Joseph was given to my mother by the church. When my mother emigrated to the United States, she couldn’t part with St. Joseph so she had him shipped from Manila to the USA. When my mother passed away, I took St. Joseph from my brother’s place and brought him to Calgary.
From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely thank Fr. Poul who was willing to accept St. Joseph to be permanently placed at St. Michael’s church. My appreciation to
Fr. Pilmaiken Lezano who was waiting and greeting St. Joseph for the first time before the ‘makeover’ began. My very special thanks to Pat Burchnall and her family, Lorna Bridarolli, Denise Bottomley. Many thanks to Suzy, Ryan and Freddy who were joined-forces in transporting St. Joseph to the church.
For all of you who worked tirelessly restoring St. Joseph, I would like to extend my highest gratitude to every single one of you. You have made St. Joseph
transformation so beautiful. I am sure he will continue to be a blessing for St. Michael as he was for me, to be a patron guiding all the families in St. Michael, the protector for each and everyone of us.
St. Michael has been ‘home’ for many of us, our solid community should forever be an inspiration for those who seek refuge in our Lord.
God bless everyone at St. Michael.
Corpus Christi – New
