Air Conditioner repairs

We have had to repair 4 of the air conditioners already this spring/summer (foyer, gym, and 2 in church). During the last Friday of Adoration we had turned off the air conditioner because it was not working and someone turned it back on which could have caused a fire. We have also had thermostats turned down to the 60’s and left there for days because staff did not know it had been changed. These things add to the cost of our utility bills that have gone up 14% this year. Please do not adjust the thermostats unless you have contacted someone on staff.

Knights of Columbus Can Drive for Seminarians

The Knights of Columbus are collecting cans for Archdiocese of Dubuque Seminarians. You can call for pick-up: Dennis 297-1602, John 712-249-3060 or Kyle 515-293-0026. These Knights would stop and pick them up for you, or you can take them directly to the redemption center and designate to KC’s. Thank you.
