Dios. Somos la presencia de Dios, los corazones, voces y manos de Jesucristo, cuyo trabajo continuamos
mientras Él continua el suyo en nosotros.

Through our offertory collections we were able to reseal the
driveways and parking spots,
build a ramp and votive candle
stand in the church, purchase a
new sound board and bell system, improve some of our lights
with more energy efficient
bulbs and have an Appreciation
Dinner. The largest accomplishment was reducing the building
In the near future we will need
to replace the church AC units,
the roof on our Servite Building, repaint the entire campus
buildings and upgrade to a new

Time, Talent and Treasure is
how we accomplish all things
through God.
