With the onslought of winter weather this year there was no heat in our chapel and other rooms in the chapel area for several days.  Father Bill Cauley celebrated Christmas Mass in our gathering room at 9:00 AM on December 25th, with the fireplace and several space heaters to keep us and our guests from freezing.


We learned a great deal about our heating system in the last two months.  The problems, we learned, were caused, not by the boilers themselves, which were replaced by new ones earlier, but from broken switches, motors in air handlers,and faulty filters.  Heat was restored in the chapel itself and the gathering room, in the past month, but there is no heat in the parlors at the present time.  The computer system itself needs to be adjusted.  Clearly, all of this is costing money.  We are grateful for generous gifts over Christmas and the new year.





We are looking for some help with answering the door and phone.  If you can spend one morning a week or month, we would be very grateful.  If you can help, call us at
