Summer is an excellent time to consider training young boys and girls to serve at Mass. This is open to students entering the 5th grade and may continue serving through high school and college. The first meeting for this training will take place on Tuesday, July 7th at 1:00 PM. I hope to use two of our senior servers. If you are interested in becoming a server, you need to show up for the first meeting. Students can be in our own Catholic School or in the public schools.
Just a short update on my condition, but first many, many thanks
for all the prayers and get well wishes that you have sent my
way. My mitral valve surgery , now having taken place three
plus weeks ago, went well. (I'm still, however, not able to drive
myself, - boo hoo.) The surgeon was able to repair the valve rather than replace it, which is a positive step. The Lord is good! After a number of days recuperating and getting good nursing care at the House of Loreto in Canton, last Sunday (6/14) I returned back home to the Emmaus House (1515 California Ave., Louisville, OH 44641) and am trying to be good and follow the post-op program to return to a new "super strength" (?) Again thank you for your prayers and support and may God bless you one and all. With love, Father Ed.
Mudd Construction projects a week of work on the front walkway in front of the church beginning this Monday. The current engraved stones were too thin to support the multiple kinds of traffic that came across them. They are being saved with the intention of installing them perhaps in a wall related to the cemetery or the Grotto.
Work this week has begun on a new gymnasium floor. It will be wood. Carl Wohlwend and Don Armbruster have been doing some carpentry work in the gymnasium. The kitchen and the Computer Room in the school have received sun repellent shades to keep these rooms cooler and the light level lower.
