I want 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 hope that we could be at 100% by the end of June.

Plans 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!

Next 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.

Have a good summer. Fourth of July is just around the corner and time really flies after that!
