PASTOR'S CORNER

Fr. Mark T. Watkins
R. C. I. A.:  The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) classes meet on Sundays after the 11:00 Mass, for one hour (11:45 to 12:45), in the school music room.  I extend a special invitation to anyone who would like to become Catholic or wishes to learn more about the Catholic Church to attend these classes.  Please call the rectory at 921-0328 for registration and for more information.              

HVAC:  We are really moving ahead in reaching our goal of $250,000 from the second collection for the new HVAC system.  You’re doing a great job.  Thank you for your generosity.            
     Installation of the HVAC system will begin as soon as this school year ends.  That’s because the duct work will be from underneath and will require closing down the cafeteria until it is installed.  I’ll keep you posted.              

Eucharistic Adoration
is on Thursdays from 3pm-5pm.
