Work on the old convent is going well and we will most likely be approved for occupancy by the second week of June. Of course, we have to stop calling it “the old convent”! We are in the process of naming the various new spaces available for parish use: the community room and dining room in the former convent as well as the rooms in the present office space. The transition to the new “Parish Center” (pretty sure that is what we will call it) will be completed by the end of the summer before the school year begins. Be patient with us as we move. There will probably be some glitches in the transfer but we will sort these out in the first couple of weeks.
I am excited about the work that is being done and look forward to having some more space for parish usage. I will be talking to the parish in the Fall about my vision for other renovations in the future (hopefully in time for our 100th Anniversary in 2020), especially the need for a Parish Social Hall. At some point I will have an open house for the new Parish Center so you can all see the good we are doing when it comes to making more space for the many activities and organizations we are blessed to have!
