to thank all who are helping us each our CSA goal. As of
this Monday we achieved 97% of our $51,037 target. I would

are approved for the new heating and air-conditioning
units for the parish hall. We will have to take probably
around $90,000 from parish savings to accomplish our task.
The project calls for new equipment replacing the thirty
year old units in addition to the drop ceiling and new
lighting. The net result should be a 50% savings in gas
and electric usage. We are also working with DTE to
procure rebates. This obviously is a major necessary
capital expense that improves our buildings and secures a
healthy future for the parish. Your support for all our
efforts over the years has been significant and allows for
the proper care of our buildings and campus. Thank you for
treating your parish property as you would care for your
own home. Right now the contractorís schedule calls for
beginning the project sometime in August or in September.
At about the same time Wayne County will begin its work on
Rotunda Drive. Neither project should present any major
problem for attending mass or parish activities. A little
bit of dust never hurt anybody!
weekend after each mass an information meeting will be
held in the gathering space to answer any questions
regarding the Autumn Getaway to upstate New York in
September. The trip is really a good value and includes
many experiences for the multi-interested traveler. The
excursion is open to anyone and information is available
in church or by calling the parish office. Reservations
need to be made by mid-July.
good summer. Fourth of July is just around the corner and
time really flies after that!
