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.
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.
Next week, we will be sending out our October Newsletter. Thank you for being patient while we went through the process of determing who still wanted to receive it. We hope you enjoy it. Cecilia did all the work putting this together.
Don't forget this Sunday, September 23, is our next Pilgrimage Sunday. We hope to see you there.
The summer vacation time officially comes to an end this next weekend. Children are already in school in Oklahoma. It was the wettest August on record, and it is starting to warm up again with today reaching close to 100 degrees. While we always need the rain, I do want to stop mowing my yard. My dad says that it is the latest date that we have been this green. Our flowers and trees are so beautiful right now. It is very peaceful and relaxing here. Before we know it, we will be in fall and planning Thanksgiving and Christmas events.
I want to wish you a Blessed holiday weekend.
