NOTES FROM FATHER MIKE
As we move into the middle of August, we are
getting closer to the beginning of school. Some
college students are already packing, and within the
next few weeks, we’ll all be back into the school
mode! There are still a few things to finish up on
before we move out of summer. We have the Parish
Picnic in a couple of weeks, the annual golf outing
next weekend, and a few other summer projects to
finish up on, such as…

The latest update on the school roof
replacement project is that it’s almost done! You’ll
notice that all of the scaffolding and equipment has
been moved out and the roofers are putting the
finishing touches on the job! Led by parishioner Dave
Dubravetz, the folks from Cardinal Roofing have done
great job, and even though you will most likely never
actually see the roof, it looks good, and we’ll mostly
notice it when it doesn’t leak!

Something you will notice will be the remodeling
that is being done in the lower “primary” hallway of the
school, near the preschool and kindergarten rooms.
(“Wingerter hall” to the folks who have been around
since the early days of the parish!) The hallway has
been repainted, carpeted, and decorate in an
impressive way! It’s not done yet, but it will be soon,
and we’ll have an “open house” so everyone can see
the work!
We are extremely grateful to The
Eickleman’s at Ryan Carpet, to Yerman and Young
Painters, and to Jay and Beth Ann Graham who made
the remodeling possible with generous donations of
labor, material, and much time and effort! Because of
their generosity, the project is being done with little cost
to the parish! We cannot thank them enough!

I’ll give this “help wanted” notice a second run
again this week: We have a few parishioners who are
quite able to go to Mass, but are no longer able to drive
and need “a lift!” If you are able to assist with this kind
of ministry, please let me know! There are not a lot of
these folks, and we would look to match up drivers with
riders in a way that would be convenient for both!
Please let me know if you might be able to help out –
even occasionally – with this kind of “hospitality”!

Remember that later this week will be one of the
Solemnities of the Church year – the feast of the
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a holy
day of obligation! Check out the Mass schedule in
today’s bulletin!
