The pandemic has been here since early 2020. Like others, we have changed the way we do things. Remote conference calls and Zoom meetings are common place. There are smaller congregations and collections.
It has helped us to appreciate even more the great parishioners that we have. We haven't been able to have the fund raisers normally held by the Men Of St. Joseph and the Ladies Altar Society. Fortunately, there are people we can rely on. As one example, our meter reader pointed out that we had an underground water leak. The next thing you know, parishioners were out in the yard with their shovels, digging up the yard. It was great when they found it in the front yard of the parish office! Unfortunately, the water use was our responsibility with a big bill.
Thank you for your support!
