Since August is now upon us, it’s time for me to resume writing my weekly bulletin column. With Fr. Gomez’s departure, July seemed like a short month. But we also need to say goodbye this weekend to our transitional deacon Paul Redmond and during the next week, we say farewell to the SOLT Sisters who have been staying with us this summer while doing Migrant Ministry. Please join us after the 11 a.m. Mass this Sunday in the Hospitality room to bid them farewell. God willing, Deacon Paul will be ordained as a priest next summer. Please keep him in your prayers throughout this final year of seminary. As everyone (except me) gets ready to leave and move on to school or other ministries, a special thanks to everyone who cooked and dropped off meals for all of us during these summer months.
Although the summer months have been pretty wet (and it has seemed to rain almost every other day), we did manage to accomplish a few projects this summer at St. Charles. In the school, windows were put in several classrooms to replace the 100 year old windows. We put carpet in another classroom, waterproofed some of the exterior walls and the boiler room in the school. Plus the first of several boilers was installed in the school. New eves were put on the rectory (in between storms) that now keep my basement from flooding. Thank you everyone for all your support with these projects, especially with the recent boiler raffle. With the addition of the money from this raffle, we are almost able to pay off the first phase of this project. In addition to this, the weather finally cooperated where we were able to get some of the lettering redone on the Ten Commandment monument.
