Church Groundbreaking

Exciting things have been happening at my church this month. Four weeks ago we had the groundbreaking ceremony for our new building, and this week the construction began.

His Grace Bishop Anthony of Toledo presided over the service. Here you can see the foundation stone being laid:



This longer video includes the foundation stone being laid and extends on to show the site being sprinkled with holy water and prayers for foundation of the church.



If you have heavy-equipment loving children, they may enjoy seeing this video of the beginning of construction this week.

    1. Small world, isn't it, Maureen? I have a priest for a Godfather, too.

      It has been a very long time in coming, that's for sure.
