'Jogging for Jesus'
School's out. The weather is getting warmer. The Cardinals are in a TEMPORARY tailspin, an all's right with the world. It's SUMMER!
And what's a summer without the annual "Jogging for Jesus" Run/Walk. Thanks to Mrs. Pieper and the OLQP Run Club, the sixth annual run was held on Saturday, June 10, at Route 66 State Park. Always great to see new runners at the events and catch up with old and faithful friends who return each year. Summer is off with a dash...
This summer promises to busy again around the parish. Already Eric Dennis and his summer help crew have started all the cleaning and repair jobs that need attention over the summer months. We understand that so far, the highlight of the summer job for Trisha and Alyssa was their attempt to get a kitty out of a tree. They scared the kitten so badly, it jumped to the ground on its own!
The Facilities and Maintenance Committee will be making its annual inspection tour of the grounds and facilities later this month. In addition to trying to stay on top of routine maintenance issues, the committee will be looking to identify and prioritize major projects that need attention. As you have heard, one project for this summer will be improvements and repairs to the parish water system. Some of these repairs stem from recommendations from the Department of Natural Resources to keep us in compliance with safe water regulations; other items include returning the system to its full functioning capabilities by repairing the main shut-off valves that have been frozen for a number of years. The committee also continues to monitor and evaluate repairs and improvements to the sewage treatment system, again to be in compliance with DNR regulations and to best serve the needs of our parishioners. The Committee's annual report will be released later this summer.
A summer session of the Financial Peace University program is about to get underway. Hope Builders will be offering assistance to parishioners in need. The St. Vincent de Paul Youth Chapter will again be assisting at the Jefferson County Health and Education Committee's annual Back-to-School Fair to serve the needs of children from low income families. And Vacation Bible School, scheduled for July, is now taking registrations.
Only Bob Ellison seems to have the right idea about summer and what it's all about. Choir practices are on hold for the summer, to be resumed next fall in preparation for the Christmas season. Way to early to be thinking about Christmas!!!
So, follow Bob's example, take some time off, root for the Cardinals and HAVE A GREAT SUMMER.
