New Icon for Chapel, Announcement from Rob Tierney - Pastoral Assistant
This new icon was created for the new chapel located in the north upper hallway of the school.
Last Friday, Feb. 16th, the icon was presented and installed by the artist - Robert Elliot, pictured above with SMCS principal Philip Stutey and his wife Sharon receiving and venerating it with much joy!
The chapel is a project funded by the school auction. It is used daily by the SMCS school children and every Wednesday night by our PSR classes. The icon will make a beautiful addition to what is becoming the most powerful space in our school - a place for prayer!
Also, very exciting news for the chapel is the decision by Bishop Kemme to allow the Blessed Sacrament to be in repose in the chapel during the school year! Below is a document from Fr. Voelker explaining the guidelines for this room and it's use to allow this to happen. This is an enormous blessing! Praise be to God!!!
Please read attached letter from St. Mary Pastoral Assistant Rob Tierney. This will also be included in this weekend's bulletin.
