Saspamco church’s prayers are answered

Saspamco church’s prayers are answered
Marina Marroquin — Parishioners of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church join the Rev. Andrew Kafara July 6 to show their appreciation for Mission Clay Products for its generous donation of land to the church, where parishioners hope to build a new church.

Due to deterioration in its structural integrity, parishioners at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Saspamco have been holding Sunday Mass in the parish hall for quite some time now. The existing structure was deemed structurally “unsafe” to host Mass or any other gathering. The hall has been converted into a house of worship, with Sunday services at 10 a.m.

Since at least 2010, the church has been steadily raising money with various fund-raisers, such as bake sales, burger and movie nights, and church festivals, to build a new sanctuary. The parish had few options of where to construct a new building, within the limited property belonging to St. Anthony’s Parish, of which Our Lady of Perpetual Help is a mission church.

The Rev. Andrew Kafara requested that the church petition Mission Clay Products for another parcel of land adjacent to the current property line. Not only did Mission Clay Products grant the request, the company also handled all the attorney fees for the land transaction. This donation of land encompasses approximately 1.079 acres and gives Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church much-needed real estate for a new church.

The parishioners are grateful to Mission Clay Products for this donation, as it will bring them closer to achieving their goal of starting construction on a new building.

“Mission Clay Products has been instrumental in granting St. Anthony’s Parish property in the Saspamco area throughout the years and we truly feel blessed to have been able to have the property donated,” said parishioner Anthony Marroquin. “We now look forward to bringing our dreams of building a new church to fruition with God’s grace.”
