Texas Expansion Update - 2ND Quarter 2017
Thanks to our Donors! Many people gave generously to make our expansion possible. Thank you for blessing us and the community.
sheridan STUDY CENTER Update
Open for Business! - The new center expands the space available to Sheridan’s programs from about 4,000 square feet to 22,000 square feet, making it possible to expose many more women and girls to leadership, spiritual life and practical skills. Open House participants were able to admire the new center’s most impressive features:
- the oratory, just inside the main entrance, designed to inspire the soul with soaring majesty and hand-painted detail work
- paintings and memorabilia in each room celebrating the warmth of family nurture, especially including images of the Madonna and Child
- a state-of- the-art kitchen for culinary arts classes, including a specially designed mirror that affords a clear view of kitchen prep work for up to 30 participants, as well as an expanded library and additional gathering spaces.
- Texas Expansion Chair Downey Bridgewater commented, “We built a beautiful space for all to come and learn how they can lead through service from professional women.”
Showcase of Service – The Open House provided the Sheridan Center an opportunity to display what are literally the fruits of its work – hospitality and care of others. Volunteers and house residents prepared unique delicacies such as bacon-wrapped dried fruits, sweet and savory Texas pecans, and fruit and cheese kabobs. One volunteer commented, “We worked hard and prayed for all the people who would attend, hoping they would enjoy themselves.” Thanks to our Donors! Many people gave generously to make our expansion possible. Thank your for blessing us and the community.
Westcott Construction Update
Westcott Study Center is near completion. - The facility will be operational for the Fall semester before school starts. The chapel and classroom space are truly promising and the staff can't hardly wait to host The Grade, High School Study Evenings, Club for 7-8th grade boys, etc. We are grateful to all of those who have donated already and we would like to let all know there is still time to give to this exciting time of the Texas Expansion.
