Building an altar: UPDATE

See UPDATE below. 

We are building an altar for the Corpus Christi procession that we will have with Bishop Morlino on Thursday, June 4th, after a Pontifical Solemn Mass in the Extraordinary Form. 

This will take place at the Bishop O'Connor Center. Everybody is encouraged to attend. 

Building the altar hasn't been easy, but it has been a very rewarding experience. We are not done yet and there's still a lot of work to do. 

Thanks to Mr. Clyde Nelson who is doing most of the work. Here you can see some of the progress. 

We drove all the way to a garage sale in Illinois for these columns!

In these pictures the columns are upside down. 

This is far from done, and the final result promises to look spectacular. Our Lord deserves it! 

Pray for this project! And if you have any suggestion or brilliant idea, let me know ( 

The next picture is a blooper, for your enjoyment: 

At one point and for some reason we thought this could look beautiful! 

Then we realized it looked more like a fifth grader's science project!  :) 

UPDATE (as of May 21st): 

Things are going well, as you can see in these pictures: 

Unfortunately, this roof structure had to be discarded and we had to make a new one from scratch. 

Here's the new, nicer roof structure! 

Making a nice abode for His Majesty!

The flower pots and pedestals are not where they should be... they're just there to hold the cloth in place momentarily... 

This is far from done yet!

As I said, this is not finished yet. There's still a lot of work to do. 

And now I need to ask you for help!

Can you please donate towards the FLOWERS (hundreds of them) that we will put in the several flower pots that we will have around this altar? 

Actually, we need flowers for THREE altars of Benediction: the two exterior ones (including the one above) and the one inside the church. 

Please consider donating towards this!

Thank you!

God bless you.

Pray for her

Pray for little Beatrice Worley.

Beatrice has been diagnosed with cancer, called Neuroblastoma. They found a malignant stage 3 tumor in her abdomen.  It is growing around an artery and causing, among other things, very high blood pressure. Until the doctors can stabilize her blood pressure, they do not want to do any medical procedures. 

The one thing Beatrice's parents asked for specifically is that we ask God's help through the intercession of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos ( have a relic of Bl. Seelos and there has already been at least one miracle through his intercession. May God grant another!
