The lift in the church, installed many years ago, has had a substantial history of breaking down.
After many repairs over a number of years, we have been told that the technology is outdated and irreparable.
This past spring, we ordered new technology. After several months of waiting, it has not yet arrived.
We recognize this has inconvenienced some parishioners, and regret this.
The Property and Finance Committee has been actively involved, and we thank them for their diligence.
We will keep you informed.
Mask-wearing is required.
Physical distancing, hand-sanitizing, and staying home if feeling unwell or are required to be in self-
Weekday masses will be held in the main church.
Work continues on the lower level.
Confessions downstairs as usual.
Maintenance/cleaning of a room used for
storage in the church lower level is scheduled for this
week. Because of this, Thursday and Friday Mass this
week will be in the main church. Note: There will be
no Mass or confessions on Tuesday this week.
Please refrain from strong scents and perfumes at Mass. There are a number of people who have allergies, and are sensitive to them. Many thanks!
Envelopes for May have been attached to this week’s bulletin. Sincere thank you to those who have contributed thus far. For your information, our average annual fuel consumption, over the past five years, amounts to 53,351.96 liters, at an average yearly cost of $40,221.09. In addition to other conservation measures that have been taken, the Committee is currently investigating the enhancement of the church’s insulation. It is realized that this is a time of financial challenge for many. We are sensitive to that. Any consideration you are able to give is much appreciated. Thank you for your support!
