I had the honor of being part of the Lin-Wood class of 2015 Baccalaureate celebration held at the rain location, Jean’s Playhouse last Sunday evening. I gave a speech along with some fantastic speakers; Chaplain Markus Corey (who also sang a song!), the two english teachers, Heather Krill and Jen Whitcher, and the math teacher, Richard Baker. Thank God I was the first in this group! It would’ve been a tough act to follow! Twenty-four students graduated last Friday evening, June 5th. Please keep them in your prayers as they begin a new chapter in their life’s journey.
An update on little baby Gavin who had cancer in which we prayed for and had made a second collection to give to the family to help pay medical bills. Well, good news, I spoke to his grandmother last Friday, and as she showed me pictures of him on her phone, said he is doing great, and was sent home last week. He had some ups and downs, but as for now, things are looking good, he is home and still smiling after all he’s been through with chemo, etc.“praise God!”
The Diocese is switching all our record keeping from each parish onto a cloud. I don’t know what that means, however, Danielle, the parish office manager, must go to two days of training this week as part of the process. The goal is that all the parish book keeping will be accessible to the Diocese as well as kept safe in a cloud. Say a special prayer for Danielle as she embarks in this extensive number crunching training from the Diocese.
May God continue to bless us, the parish and all the good works we do!
God Love you!
