Issue 14: Christ the Good Shepherd
Last chance to see the current Project!
Christ the Good Shepherd
Since 2003 I’ve been bringing the Lego Church Project to Christ the Good Shepherd parish in Saginaw, MI starting around Advent. It is the last display of this current season and will run though at least the first weekend of January.
While the goal for this display is to give people one last chance to see the current build before I take it apart. It is also important for me as this is my home parish. I grew up here. It is a place that has my own spiritual foundation. This also gives me a chance to show how much of a wonderful and welcoming parish community we are. I want to bring visitors to the parish not only to see my work. But also to see the work that our parish is doing. We have always been blessed even in the face of challenges.
If you are going to be in the Saginaw, MI region and would like to see this project in person. Please stop on by. Our parish is located the corner of N. Charles and Deindorfer. (A few blocks from Bay Rd and Weiss.) Our Mass times is Sat at 5:30PM and Sunday at 10:30AM. I’m normally at the Sunday Mass for choir. But if your stopping out on Sat let me know.
Also keep this display in prayer. Always a challenging time around the holidays and I am praying for a decent turnout this season. If you get a chance please stop out. The pictures I post don’t do this justice!
Building the Church
The Daughters of St. Paul are in a desperate need to replace some windows. Bad enough to the point that the windows are leaking badly during any kind of rain storm. As of this post they are close to their goal. So if you are able to please consider helping them out!
This is pretty much heading into the end of the season. A bittersweet time. Once the project comes home from the parish I will tear it down to the base plates and begin the process all over. I’m currently starting to gather the parts that I need. So the donations will be helpful. Also doing a lot of praying. Given how this season has turned out over all. May the Lord guide me in sharing the faith, talking about disability issues, and giving people hope in the face of challenges.
