In honor of the 60th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of St. Raymond Church in 1961, I would like to offer the community an opportunity to give the tabernacle a more prominent place in our worship space.
We are called to be missionary disciples of Christ, and this journey will require strength and understanding that can only be found in the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. It is the presence of the power of Jesus in the Eucharist that makes us into the Body of Christ in the world. If that is not central to our spirituality, we cannot fulfill our mission.
“Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also those who feed on me will have life because of me. (John 6:57)
You are invited to prayerfully consider supporting the relocation of the tabernacle from the prayer chapel to the church. This relocation project will also entail some remodeling of the chapel. The chapel will continue to serve as the prayer and adoration chapel. We will enhance the dedicated chapel space to add a focus for the monstrance used in Adoration, while keeping the chapel a peaceful oasis of prayer.
This project will be made possible solely by contributions given for this specific purpose. The goal is to raise $200,000. This will enable us to complete the project at a high level of quality that will enhance our worship space.
Please see Fr. Scott’s letter for more information.
