I feel like I have really lost track of time, especially when we are officially at the Labor Day weekend and the unofficial end of summer. But I think I have finally settled into a routine and look forward to the fall activities and programs.
Once again, I would like to put out the invitation to those who might be interested in joining the Church and learning more about the faith through the RCIA classes. Watch the bulletin for more information on this. I plan to start classes, most likely on Weds nights, in September.
For some reason, St. Charles has ended up with a few spare pianos around here. We have a piano that was donated for the yard sale that did not sell. The baby grand piano that was in Church is no longer able to be repaired. Both are available, as is, for anyone interested in hauling them away. They would make good practice pianos for someone learning or they make nice furniture
To replace the piano in Church, we have received a donated piano from one of my former parishes and parishioners, free of charge. We only had to pay for the moving. Before we accepted this donation, I had it certified that it was a good instrument and it should last our musicians a good number of years.
Thanks for reading!
