Parking Lot Repaving Set to Start
Repaving of the Church parking lot is scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 3. "This massive effort in renovation and reconstruction comes as part of our Sesquicentennial celebration and is paid for by the Capital Campaign Heritage of Faith Vision of Hope," Msgr. David Diamond said. "While all that is good news, the challenging news is we will not be able to use the parking lot throughout the week. Still more pressing is the fact that it may be closed on the weekend of Aug. 8-9 -- depending on the weather and how quickly the project is completed. I will keep you updated via email and our website. I know this is an inconvenience but it is very temporary and very necessary."

Quotes From Pope Francis...
“Sometimes we do things which are not good and which harm others. It is important to have the courage to ask for forgiveness when we are at fault in the family.”
