Construction Update:  The gym flooring has been delayed into October at this time.  The crews are working on cosmetic repair to some of the block in the gym, so it was decided to delay the flooring until that is complete so we don’t harm the new flooring.  Landscaping will begin in the near future, possibly even this week.  Detail work on the inside is happening and the key card system is nearly up and running.  We are currently getting our storage spaces and library set up in the new building as well.

A Message From a 100.3 FM Listener

A listener to our local Catholic radio station recently described the station as a “lifeline” and the radio programming as providing “so much good information about our faith from good sources.  It gives me strength and hope, and it does the same for so many others who I listen to when they call in to the programs that take live callers.” If you haven’t yet discovered 100.3 FM, tune in to the programming which runs 24/7. If you are already a listener, encourage your friends and family to share in this resource for personal faith enrichment and tool for evangelization.
