BLESSINGS & NEW EVENTS THIS YEAR! CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS FOR CHURCH!

This is a picture of our Vicar's dog who needed to be muzzled for St. Francis of Assisi Day.

As of late, there have been a lot of praises and disappointments.
The roof of the parish house has been fixed and new carpeting is in the church.
This past semester our three attendees of Sunday School made some nice crafts and
learned how to draw certain types of animals.
• If anyone wants to meet with Renee to see how we might start having Bible Time again,
let her know of your ideas.
Our extended family, the pets in our lives, help us to seek the joy of
St. Francis of Assisi.

This is a picture of two of the church's children for the Christmas Program.
WINTER NOTICE:
Sometime ago, we were faced with the prospect
of having to make a very expensive repair to the parish heating system.
At that time, the system was "two zone." Water was heated in the
basement and pumped through the radiators on the first floor. A
separate pump pumped the water to the second floor radiators for
circulation.Our Heating Contractor was able to fix the systme by
making modifications, which allowed the heat to rise to the second
floor by "convection." Without the second pump and since we do
not use this second floor for meetings, much in the winter,
this works fine at less cost.

HOWEVER: For this to work, the doors of the upstairs rooms must
bekept open or the plaster in the walls and ceiling will crack.

hope for our children, our church, and ourselves. In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
