Under Construction :: A LEGO Cathedral

by | Jan 14, 2016 | Lego | 0 comments

Last spring our pastor sent out a parish wide survey and feasibility study seeking out our thoughts and recommendations regarding the possibility of building a new church for our parish.

The conceptual drawings of our possible new church inspired Ranger to start building a new cathedral of his own, expanding on the ideas from the boys’ previous Cathedral of the Immaculate Heart, using random LEGO pieces from their ever growing collection, just in case our pastor wanted some additional ideas.  ðŸ˜‰

While Ranger was building the cathedral, Captain was having fun with the rest of the construction site including scaffolding, construction workers, photographers, pizza delivery, and even a news crew interviewing the pastor!

Construction has continued to take place ever since these pictures were taken last April (2015), using additional bricks purchased last summer and even more LEGO found in Ranger’s stocking on Christmas morning. However, just like our parish’s plans, this project is also way over budget and is on hold for now pending additional funds LEGO. 😉

Here are some of the LEGO sets used for this project so far:

The Battle of Helm’s Deep and Urak-hai Army
“Saint Statues” from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Game
Long White Candles – railing from Creator Lighthouse
Classic Style Limousine from the Palace Cinema and Camper Van
Demolition Service Truck (and porta potty for construction site)

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
