Good News and Parish Work Day – June 17th

We have the building permit for our kitchen in hand and plan to begin installation in early July! BEFORE ANYTHING can be done, however, we have to empty the kitchen and basement utility room COMPLETELY.  We will have a parish work day on June 17 beginning at 9:00 a.m. and are asking everyone to turn out to help - many hands make light work! We will have a POD for storage as well as a dumpster for unwanted "stuff".  Please put this date on your calendar. If these rooms aren't emptied we cannot proceed with the kitchen.  If you have any questions please call or email Molly McEvoy on 443-340-5711 or
