I thought that the summer months would slow down, but they've been just as busy, with different activities. The recently completed CMLI gathering was a wonderful success for our local church, bringing in just about 100 campus ministry participants, from around the country for a week long leadership institute. Congratulations to Sal for being named the Director of the CMLI program; his term is for three years, please keep Sal in your prayers as he begins this great adventure. Thanks to Mona, and the rest our campus ministry student team, along with resident parishioners, who helped with hospitality and other important details.
The Finance and Parish Councils have approved our budget for the 2015/16 fiscal year, beginning on July 1, 2015. The Finance Council is prepared to offer a year at a glance finalized budget report in the very near future. Thanks to all of the members of both councils for your help!
The Visioning committee will be offering a presentation at all of the weekend masses, explaining the three building/renovation options. They will explain the various possibilities along with the phasing options available at this time. Parishioners will be asked to complete a simple ballot, indicating their preferred choices, both on their option and phasing possibilities.
Peace Fr. Ray
