You are cordially invited to a talk on
"Planning and Building the Ascension Catholic Church Building"
Rev. Fr. James Betz
Time/Date: 7:30 pm., Thursday evening, January 6, 2005
Place: James Bates Hall , Ascension Catholic Church, 12700
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.
