You are cordially invited to a talk on  
"Planning and Building the Ascension Catholic Church Building"  

Fr.  James Betz

Speaker:  Rev. Fr. James Betz

Time/Date: 7:30 pm., Thursday evening, January 6, 2005
Place:  James Bates Hall , Ascension Catholic Church, 12700 Lanham-Severn Road, Bowie, Maryland 20720
      Tel: 301 262 2227

Father Betz will speak on the  beautiful Ascension Parish Church Building which was built in 1986 but is like a wonderful baroque jewel box of a cruciform church,  richly decorated throughout with many statues, gold leafed decorated sky blue ceiling, traditional stained glass windows, a greater than life-sized polychrome crucifix, side altars and large portraits of the saints.  
Fr. Betz was a deacon in the parish at the time of construction and had years of experience in the construction business in the Washington area.   So he has a unique insight into the design and construction of the church building.
Note:  The talk will be preceded by a recitation of the rosary.  Light refreshments will be provided.
