Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
Please accept our sincere gratitude for your prayers and support in opposing the proposed Solid Waste Transfer Station. The outpour of encouragement and support from all of you was simply wonderful! Your kind words and deeds have blessed us with refreshed spirit and renewed energy to defend our Archdiocese and our Church.
As noted in the appeal, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners will finalize their decision on this matter at the next board meeting on Tuesday, February 3. Until that time, our entire congregation is committed to keeping the public focus squarely on this matter. Please continue to pray and support our cause by:
1. Continue to call and email the Board of Commissioners to object the Solid Waste Transfer Station. Please also tap into your contact list and circulate our online petition (note that they do not have to be a resident of Gwinnett County to send email). Our website address is www.cacthanhtudaovn.org.
2. Join us for the 12-hour Prayer Vigil at our Church on Saturday, January 31 from noon to midnight. We are located at 4545-A Timmers Way – Norcross, GA 30093. Members of the local media will be present to cover the event.
3. Be present at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Building (75 Langley Drive – Lawrenceville, GA 30045) on Tuesday, February 3 at 1:00 PM for the Board of Commissioners’ meeting. We hope to get several thousand to attend this meeting to show our solidarity in defending our Archdiocese and our Church.
Thank you again for your continued support!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
