REPAIR AFFAIR - We want you! Saturday, June 26, 2021
The Cathedral Repair Affair Team does not yet know where our location will be or what job(s) will be needed, but there is a variety of possibilities: building a wheelchair ramp, exterior siding and porch painting, foundation and trim painting, yard work, minor electrical, minor plumbing, minor carpentry, or other jobs. All work will be done outside of the home due to Covid-19. We would really like to have you on our team. If you are willing to help, please call Rita Owens at 502-387-7511 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
February 14, Valentine’s Day, is Commitment Sunday for our 2021 Stewardship Renewal process. That may be one of the reasons the Stewardship Committee adopted a rather obvious as well as fitting tagline: Stewardship, a gift of the heart. We ask you to submit your form by February 14 or at your earliest convenience.
The very first question asks you to share what is on your heart for our parish family as we go forward. We look forward to hearing from you.
Recently the Cathedral wired $6,000 to Cathedral St Louis, our Sister Parish in Jeremie, Haiti. Funds used for the lunch program at St Therese School. Here is the thank you email Jack Lydon received, on January 25, 2021.
Subject: Thank you of the St Therese School for the lunch Program
Mr Jack Lydon,
I have a great pleasure to answer your mail. It is up to me to thank you for this help so precious in these difficult times that the world is going through. In Haiti, the socio-political and economic situation is very hard for the citizens, especially for the children. The latter are often victims of kidnappings by armed individuals. Their release depends on the ability of their parents and relatives to pay exorbitant ransoms. Children like adults live in fear. We have the feeling of being handed over to the bandits. Thus, keeping children in school and feeding them on site is a great contribution to parents. Thank you very much for the lunch Program of St. Therese School.
As for the evolution of Covid-19 for the parishioners of St Louis Cathedral in Jeremie, the situation remains stable. There are no known cases of people in the parish suffering from the Covid-19.
I wish all the parishioners of Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral, the Pastor, and your family my best wishes for the health in the New Year! May Our Lady of the Assumption keep you under her mantle of grace! God bless you.
