On Friday October 4th we celebrated the Patronal Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Anniversary of the Dedication of our new Church Sanctuary. To celebrate there were a number of activities, including the Annual Golf Tournament, An Evening with Frank Sinatra Dinner and Silent Auction. A lot of time and effort went into the planning and the actual events themselves. I want to thank Andrea Cihak, my secretary and her whole host of volunteers who made everything run so smoothly! Thanks Pat Cernyar and the Knights for cooking up and serving such a delicious dinner! How blessed we are to have such great people willing to step up and volunteer. You guys are great!
This past Sunday night I had the chance to go over to Assisi Hall and be with our teens as they were in Life Teen. I personally want to thank Tod and all of the Teens. It was great to see so many teens with Tod and such great energy and enthusiasm. I am proud of each of you! Keep being the young men and young women of such deep faith and love for Jesus Christ!
Thanks to all of you who purchased tickets for the St. Peter’s Parish F150 truck raffle! Your purchase not only helps St. Peter’s Parish in Monument, but also helps us with funds toward the upcoming Mission Trip and the UCCS Catholic Student Center.
Finally, my personal thanks to Tod and Danny for helping me work on the stone benches in the St. John Paul II Prayer Path. You guys are remarkable.
I pray that you all continue to be great people of God bringing the light of Christ out to the Town of Castle Rock and to Douglas County.
