It is highly anticipated that the project is currently in the middle of about a year of pre-construction (value added designs, planning, regular design, budgeting, etc.) with target construction of this project to begin the 4th quarter of this year.

Blessed Father Stanley Rother

Quote
McSherry unearthed a wooden box, deteriorated by a decade of moisture and turning to sawdust. The heart was enshrined inside a black plastic sheet.

"There was about a half-gallon jar with blood in it, and the metal part of the jar had rusted but the blood had not congealed," said McSherry, now a priest at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Oklahoma City.

Another excavation eyewitness, the Rev. Greg Schaffer, asked other priests to observe the fresh blood.

"It seemed to me blood would coagulate in a container over 10 years," said Schaffer, who still serves in the neighboring San Lucas Toliman mission in Guatemala.
