A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the site of the new Prairie Faith Formation building on the morning of Sunday, August 14th.  Father Richard Haldane was surrounded by members of the Steering Committee, Pastoral Council, PFFP Board, as well as the architect, general contractor, and fellow parishioners as he blessed the ground and prayed for a successful and safe completion of the project, which will begin this week.  During the construction phase, the students enrolled in the program will continue their studies in the former PFFP building and transition to the new building once it is ready for use.  The anticipated completion date for the new building is some time in January.
