GREAT NEWS!!!!!!! H.E. ARCHBISHOP JOHN HARTMAYER APPROVES FSSP REQUEST FOR NEW CHURCH BUILDING PROJECT
Due to the tremendous growth that has occurred at Saint Francis de Sales in Mableton, the FSSP parish has outgrown its church and facilities. Sunday masses are no longer in the church and have been moved to a gymnasium to accommodate the large crowds. Because of this, the pastor made a request of the archbishop to approve the parish to build a new larger church. The archbishop responded positively to the request. He is a friend of the FSSP and supports the FSSP parish.
Below is the announcement by the pastor as to exactly what permission has been granted by the archbishop.
Archbishop Hartmayer has given us the green light to begin the preparations necessary to consider the possibility of building a new church. There is much work to be done and many questions to be answered, so please keep this intention in your daily prayers. The average building project takes around 4 years to complete. Archbishop kindly sends his blessing on our parish and parishioners.
