Dear Corpus Christi,
In consideration for the safety and security of each and every one of you, our beloved parishioners, I hereby inform you that our Holy Week and Easter celebrations will be in the gym.
The construction team, Moeller Purcell, tried to fulfill their promise of having the inside of the church ready and usable for our Holy Week and Easter celebrations, and indeed, they kept their word.
Unfortunately, after much investigation, research and testing, the fire alarm system in the church building simply does not work. It is a 1970s model panel that has no capability of being monitored and is beyond repair at this point. Therefore, we will not be able to obtain our Certificate of Occupancy in time for our Easter celebrations.
I sincerely solicit your understanding, sacrifice and patience. Please continue to be as flexible as you have been throughout this time. I imagine and understand the numerous challenges and readjustments that are involved, and beforehand, I appreciate your collaboration.
At the same time, I crave your indulgence and wholeheartedly seek your maximum cooperation to see that we have a successful Holy Week and Easter Celebration. We look forward to moving back into the church as soon as possible. We encourage you to continue to check the website, Construction Corner and the bulletin for future updates.
Fr. Paschal Amagba, CMF
