This Tuesday we will go to the diocese to meet with the College of Consultors. The College of Consultors is an advisory committee to the bishop mandated by the Code of Canon Law. Its main person is twofold: to elect an administrator at the death of the bishop AND to advise the bishop whenever there is a large expenditure within the diocese such as the building of new churches, parish centers, and renovations. I am one of the consultors on the college but it is as a petitioner that I go on Tuesday.
Our plans to renovate the old convent have been approved by the Diocesan Building Committee and after meeting with the Chief Financial Officer of the diocese this past week, we are in a sound financial position to move forward. At this final meeting the Bishop and priests of the College of Consultors will ask us questions before we have the final approval to start the renovation. If all is in order, we just need the approval of the township to start, hopefully soon. I will give you an update on the costs, plans and timeline after the meeting on Tuesday. Lots of good things happening. More info to come!
