    It is an awesome and overwhelming feeling of appreciation to be able to witness the Grand Ceremony

    commemorating the completion of the major renovation of the church.

    I can truly feel the passion of the pastor to rebuild the church.

    Are the above sentences fine/natural?

    Thanks.

    Your sentences are grammatically correct but I wouldn't call them natural. They're wordy and the language is rather florid.

    For your first sentence, I suggest breaking it into two sentences. "To be able to do something" is not a feeling.

    Assuming you want this to be in the present tense:


    I sincerely appreciate being able to witness the Grand Ceremony commemorating the completion of the major renovation of the church. It is an awesome and overwhelming experience.

    Your second sentence is fine.
