|ST. AIDAN’S TO HOST EXPANSION CELEBRATION
CYPRESS, Texas — With the construction of their expansion project complete, parishioners at St. Aidan’s are planning a special celebration in late August.
Set for Aug. 24, the consecration of the new worship space will be conducted by the Rt. Rev. Jeff Fisher. The festivities will start with a celebratory mass at 530 p.m.
“How wonderful to have our consecration coincide with our namesake’s special day,” said Rev. Les Carpenter, Rector of St. Aidan’s.
After years of planning, construction began in December.
“This expansion gave us more room in the sanctuary, as well as a parish hall,” Carpenter said. “This new space will give us more functionality and the ability to offer more — and do more — for our community.
“Just last month in our VBS, we were able to use our worship space for the classroom area and the parish hall for games. Our students did yoga, and we even had some wildlife experts visit us that week.”
The community is invited to join the St. Aidan’s family for the consecration celebration.
“We’ll be gathering in the new parish hall area before the service. After prayers by the bishop and a symbolic knock at the door, we will process into the new sanctuary. The bishop will bless the pulpit and the alter, and we will have our traditional eucharist.”
After the celebratory mass, there will be a special dinner and activities.
