Welcome to Guardian Angels
Dear Friends and Families of Guardian Angels Parish,
In May 2013, we completed the purchase of more than four acres of land south of the Parish Hall all the way to the white post with a Guardian Angel. Two years ago, we formed a Design Committee and took major steps toward building our new parish facilities. Now we’re ready for the next step. We’re spreading our wings!
We have seen over the last ten years a tremendous growth in our parish community from Berthoud and Mead. With new housing inevitably coming to town, we want to be ready with our wonderful hospitality to welcome all these people to the Lord’s Table. We
already know that if we had more room, we would be doing even more service and social projects and offerings for the whole community.
Everyone can see and feel Sunday after Sunday the crowded little 100 year old church. Of course, we will preserve our amazing little church, not only to remember and honor our past, but because it is a sacred space filled with a peaceful and comforting holiness we want to carry into our future.
Now we have come to the second phase of the great work that God has given us to do. We are now being challenged to ensure the future for Guardian Angels. While our pioneer ancestors were great women and men of faith, now it is our turn. I believe that because of your sacrifices and stewardship, your faith and hope in the future, later parishioners will look back at us and say this was the greatest generation, these were the good old days.
The fact that God is moving so many more people to join us in worship and work for the reign of God proclaims loudly to one and all that God wants a church to be built here in this parish.
Everything is coming into a very happy alignment for us at Guardian Angels. This is the time.
Along with your parish leadership, I invite your to use the holy card for our Capital Campaign 2015 “Spreading Our Wings” and pray with your whole household at each meal for the success of our capital campaign. Pray to be encouraged and strengthened to be generous when you make your pledge.
May the good work the Holy Spirit has begun in us be brought to completion for the praise and honor of our Lord Jesus Christ. May the holy Guardian Angels guide us along right paths in all our decisions. May we gather in their company with the saints to praise God for so many blessings. Let’s spread our wings!
Gratefully yours in Jesus,
Fr Alan Hartway, CPPS
