Today Weatherbug.com says we got .56 of an inch of rain today.  It is hard to believe that we needed rain after record-breaking rain in June.  The month of July was very dry.  It is also nice because it cools things down a bit.  The tempurature is only 80 degrees today.  I am happy about that.  

July was a struggle emtionally as Father Long's dad passed near the end of the month.  We had a Vietnamese Mass which was so beautiful.

I hope this finds you all well and having a great summer.

Mother's Day Flowers

You cannot tell today (It is 52 degrees today), but we are almost through spring.  I am sitting at my computer watching a pair of Robins feed their babies out my window.  They are big and strong and will abandon their nest soon. 

We just went past the Kolache Festival, and of course, we sold every last one.  Thank you to everyone who helped with the bakes and going to the festival to help in the booth.  Doing this kind of work is very important if we want to continue being a part of the Kolache Celebration, not only for the church, but also for the local tradition and heritage.

Father had made and installed at the back of the church this past week new 10 Commandments.  When you come to the church take a look at them.  They are very nice.

This is the beginning of a new year.  We had a blessed Christmas here at the Shrine and hope that you all did also.  Our church is decorated to beautifully.  We had over 700 names for our Christmas Bell Tree.  Now we are looking forward to what l 2019 will bring us and hope we will see you if you are able to visit us.

New water garden

We have had beautiful Fall here.  The trees were starting to turn reds and yellow when we had a hard freeze.  We received around an inch of snow this morning and the temperature is under 30.

A few weeks back, Father Long created a water garden at the Shrine.  It is very beautiful and calming.  Father has worked so hard on the grounds. 

All our Christmas items will be on sale for 25% off beginning Sunday, November 18.

November 25 is our last Pilgrimage for this year.  We hope you will come to see us.

Our office/gift shop will be closed next week, November 22 & 23 for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  The staff want to wish you a safe and happy holiday.
