July is usually a sleepy month in most parishes and things have slowed down a bit since the flurry of activity surrounding the end of school and the parish festival. Of course, here at St. Joan of Arc, we have a large number of weddings (I would venture to say the most in the diocese) and that is always a good thing. But this July we are seeing a lot of work being done in the parish. The hallway in the Education Center (from the gymnasium all the way to the end of the building near the Parish Center) is being painted and a new floor is being laid. In blues and golds and light grey (you all know by now I like a grey
color scheme), it is going to look great. We have also already begun readying the cafeteria to become our new Parish Social Hall by laying a new floor in wood tones. It is amazing how big the place looks! Although it does remind me how much the rest of the room needs updated! Along with the interior renovations, we have been doing a lot of outdoor work with trimming trees and doing landscaping. (A special thanks to the parishioner who gave us a good amount of money to freshen up the landscaping!) Most of the work will be done by the beginning of August so then you can stop over and see the improvements! Updating and maintaining and freshening up is all part of good stewardship for any parish. I hope you like the end product!
