Building Campaign<br />

“Growing in Fa<strong>it</strong>h, Building the Future”<br />

Goal<br />

Third matching grant<br />

Amount Collected<br />

as <strong>of</strong> January 27, <strong>2013</strong><br />

% <strong>of</strong> Goal<br />

$25,000.00 ~$<strong>10</strong>,000.00 40%<br />

Building Update February 18: <strong>We</strong> begin our payments on<br />

the Church Building to the Archdiocese on <strong>March</strong> 1, w<strong>it</strong>h a<br />

balance due <strong>of</strong> about $2,685,000 over the next <strong>15</strong> years. This is<br />

a simplification, as we have 3 loans due, one for <strong>15</strong> years, one<br />

for <strong>10</strong> years, and a deferred loan on the land that will begin<br />

when the <strong>10</strong> year loan ends. Our payments will be<br />

approximately $21,000 monthly. Exact figure will be known<br />

by end <strong>of</strong> Feb. after interest is computed.<br />

I mentioned on Jan. 13 that we would start taking up a<br />

second collection on the second <strong>Sunday</strong> <strong>of</strong> the month to help<br />

pay our loan, but after consulting w<strong>it</strong>h the Finance Comm<strong>it</strong>tee<br />

we have decided to hold <strong>of</strong>f on that until we know how we<br />

stand w<strong>it</strong>h our regular <strong>of</strong>fertory and expenses. The challenge<br />

we have is that many <strong>of</strong> our expenses in our rented building<br />

the last 5 years were covered by our rent, but now we have to<br />

pay our util<strong>it</strong>ies and snow removal and landscaping and<br />

maintenance ourselves, and we don’t have a history <strong>of</strong><br />

knowing what those expenses will be yet, so we are estimating<br />

them. So far, the first 6 months <strong>of</strong> the fiscal year have been<br />

very good for us. <strong>We</strong> will continue to assess the s<strong>it</strong>uation every<br />

month.<br />

<strong>We</strong> have also been extremely blessed during this<br />

construction period w<strong>it</strong>h so many donated gifts that have saved<br />

us construction costs, such as: the crucifix, the stained glass<br />

window, the tabernacle, the tabernacle altar, the new altar, the<br />

baptism font, the statues <strong>of</strong> Mary and Joseph, the Our Lady <strong>of</strong><br />

Guadalupe tapestry, the wooden statue <strong>of</strong> Mary in the parish<br />

hall from Vietnam, the entire k<strong>it</strong>chen and tables and chairs, the<br />

statue <strong>of</strong> St. Francis outside, the med<strong>it</strong>ation garden, and <strong>of</strong><br />

course the pews. There have been many other donations that<br />

have helped us make this a real<strong>it</strong>y, and I thank all <strong>of</strong> you from<br />

the bottom <strong>of</strong> my heart. If you would like to help w<strong>it</strong>h a gift,<br />

please contact me. Fr. Frank<br />

May God bless you and our Church in his Love! Amen.<br />

Pastor’s Corner<br />

Today’s gospel <strong>of</strong> the healing <strong>of</strong> the man born blind<br />

reminds us that we must be careful how we interpret<br />

encounters w<strong>it</strong>h God and His church. The Pharisees did not<br />

like that Jesus healed on the Sabbath when no work was<br />

allowed. They judged that the healing was a disobedience to<br />

God’s law. But they failed to distinguish between good and<br />

evil in the healing. Instead <strong>of</strong> rejoicing w<strong>it</strong>h the healed man,<br />

they questioned him to find some reason to attack Jesus.<br />

You may sometimes hear me speak about<br />

Protestantism in a cr<strong>it</strong>ical way. I firmly believe that, although<br />

reform is always needed in the church and in each <strong>of</strong> us, the<br />

proper way Jesus would want us to work on reform is from<br />

w<strong>it</strong>hin the church. Luther and other Protestant reformers<br />

were too impatient, too proud to allow time for the reforms<br />

to work from w<strong>it</strong>hin. They failed to respect Jesus’ prayer at<br />

the last supper, “I pray…so that they may all be one, as you,<br />

Father, are in me and I in you…” John 17:21-22. But, that<br />

does not mean that Protestants, as well as people <strong>of</strong> other<br />

religions, do not love God and do good things in His name.<br />

They do, and we should honor the good that anyone does,<br />

while always praying that all Christians may one day be un<strong>it</strong>ed.<br />

Unfortunately, as a world we are still going in the wrong<br />

direction, w<strong>it</strong>h more division in the Body <strong>of</strong> Christ each year.<br />

Individually, we must be careful we do not judge<br />

others (although we always must judge behavior). <strong>We</strong> judge<br />

actions so that we can learn from them and teach others the<br />

good things <strong>of</strong> God’s will for us. But only God can judge a<br />

person. Each <strong>of</strong> us is a pilgrim on the road <strong>of</strong> life, given<br />

instruction from God down through the ages through His<br />

prophets and Church. Each generation we must apply God’s<br />

teachings to new circumstances in a way that honors God’s<br />

will, always keeping our eyes and hearts open to hear God’s<br />

will. If we do that, we will celebrate w<strong>it</strong>h the eyes <strong>of</strong> fa<strong>it</strong>h<br />

God’s incredible love in our lives and in the world. Amen!<br />

What other RCIA ceremonies are celebrated during<br />

<strong>Lent</strong>? The most important ceremonies after the R<strong>it</strong>e <strong>of</strong><br />

Election are the ‘pen<strong>it</strong>ential’ ones, meaning those which are<br />

connected w<strong>it</strong>h our trying to untie the bonds <strong>of</strong> sin, in order<br />

to live in the joy <strong>of</strong> Christ. There are two kinds <strong>of</strong> pen<strong>it</strong>ential<br />

ceremonies. If the adults are unbaptized (catechumens), then<br />

the parish celebrates ceremonies called scrutinies. But if the<br />

adults have already been baptized (candidates) then there is<br />

only one ceremony, the Pen<strong>it</strong>ential R<strong>it</strong>e. This year we have<br />

two young people who are unbaptized, now having gone to<br />

the Cathedral they are called the Elect. <strong>We</strong> will celebrate a<br />

scrutiny for them this <strong>Sunday</strong>, <strong>March</strong> <strong>10</strong>, at the 5 pm<br />

Mass.<br />

St. Francis <strong>of</strong> Assisi Catholic Church has been participating<br />

Cenacle <strong>of</strong> Life. All who wish to participate are<br />

inv<strong>it</strong>ed to join us Thursday evenings from<br />

Hello Everyone! During <strong>Lent</strong> we are asked to pray more<br />

which we all try to do. In last we<strong>ek</strong>'s bulletin the insert on the<br />

seven steps <strong>of</strong> prayer is excellent. Father Frank encouraged<br />

all <strong>of</strong> us to try these steps and I hope everyone is. What a<br />

wonderful guide for teaching us how to pray. The chapter on<br />

prayer in our <strong>Lent</strong>en book study is wonderful and we are<br />

learning so much in our discussion groups, plus an added<br />

bonus, we are getting to know more <strong>of</strong> our parish family.<br />

Thank You God for all <strong>of</strong> Your Blessings. <strong>We</strong> Love You!<br />

WHAT IS THE SCRIP PROGRAM?? Are you new to the<br />

parish and not qu<strong>it</strong>e sure what the scrip program is all about?<br />

Stop by the scrip / gift card counter and check <strong>it</strong> out. In a<br />

nutshell, you buy gift cards for shopping or dining and the<br />

Parish receives a percentage w<strong>it</strong>h each purchase. It really is that<br />

easy! If you don't have a King Sooper's or Safeway<br />

reloadable card, please pick one up. The in<strong>it</strong>ial cost is $50 for<br />

King Sooper’s and $<strong>10</strong> for Safeway. You can then reload any<br />

amount at the store and <strong>it</strong> will earn a percentage for our Parish.<br />

Use <strong>it</strong> for all your shopping and gas needs!<br />

Hungry for something special for breakfast?? Did you know<br />

we have several places for breakfast <strong>it</strong>ems? Why not<br />

try: The Egg and I, Perkins, or Cracker Barrel.<br />

Just want something on the run or to take w<strong>it</strong>h you?<br />

Why not try: Great Harvest, Panera, Starbucks or<br />

Ziggi's. Stop by the gift card counter for all your breakfast<br />

needs!<br />
