As you hopefully saw in last week’s bulletin column, our vestibule expansion project is moving forward, full steam ahead!  I didn’t give you many updates during the month of May because there were lots of behind-the-scenes details that we had to work out in order to determine a path forward.  I’ve been saying all along … [Read more…]

Fr. Steve’s Column 6-18-23

I know I haven’t updated you on the vestibule expansion project in the last several weeks.  Lots has been going on over the last month, but we needed to get some details worked out before I could give you a reliable update.  (This is primarily because our general contractor bids came back much higher than … [Read more…]

The time for the formal phase of our vestibule expansion fundraiser has arrived!  In November we offered a “sneak peek” for those who wanted to make donations to the project before year-end, as well as for anyone who simply wanted to see what this project was all about.  The response was tremendous.  Not only did … [Read more…]
