Pastor’s News

Have you visited the Parish House lately?  Over the past couple of years there have been some changes that make it more inviting than ever.

Thanks primarily to the efforts of Janet Zug, Lisa and Dominick Amodeo, the playground continues to provide a safe to play.   It’s a rare day that I don’t see at least one family enjoying the playground when I’m in the office.  Two picnic tables and benches, along with a grill, given by Kay Jorgensen, further enhance the lawn around the playground.  What a difference all of these things have made in our Family Nights and other outdoor events.

And, of course, everyone is talking about the newly refinished floor in the main meeting room of the Parish House.  Thanks to Mike McDonnell, Euclid Farnham and Rob Howe, this room is light and bright.  The new floor has even opened up the doorway to the kitchen, allowing traffic to flow better for events like Coffee Hour.  And, thanks to Mike McDonnell, there is a new cabinet in the kitchen that allows the Food Shelf staff to move cases of food from the floor under the tables to a more accessible storage space.

If you haven’t had a reason to come to the Parish House and see these things first hand, stop by and see me during my office hours.  During the summer I’ll be in my office on Tuesdays (except July 12 and August 2) and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.  If you need to reach me while I’m there, you can call 685-1178.
