An Update from Our Events and Facilities Manager 

PHASE I.25

March—The Saint Cecilia Organizing Month

We are off to an amazing start! The “Tidying has begun,” here is the update:

All our Ministries are on board cleaning and repurposing program supplies. 
We found storage for our Coffee Hospitality equipment and supplies free of charge.

Our Spring Calendar:

The Mass schedule will remain unchanged. 
Beginning May 1, there will be no events scheduled for any parts of the Parish Pastoral Center (Parish Hall and classrooms). This includes canceling the last two films scheduled for the Faith & Film Series. 
Our annual Ministry Appreciation event is still scheduled to occur, and we will keep you informed as plans take shape. 
Beginning in May, we will have the 9:30 and 11:15 Coffee Hours on a monthly basis. The dates will appear in the parish bulletin. 
Summerfest will not take place this summer but will be back on the calendar in June of 2020.

We hope to build off this strong and start to keep the train moving. Stay tuned for more information, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time with your questions or concerns.

Peace,

“Tidying is better together.” — Marie Kondo
PHASE I March—The Saint Cecilia Organizing Month 
This March is designated as the parish organizing month and we will come up with fun ways to come together and do our mise-en-place. For those of you who have worked in a restaurant kitchen or who watch the Food Network, you know that the time-honored system that makes professional kitchens function is called mise-en place, or, literally, “everything put in its place.” We have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years and will go through our cabinets and storage areas and do a purge worthy of Marie Kondo. Stay tuned for more information!

We realize that these four months of construction will be challenging and perhaps even a little inconvenient at times, but the result will be more than worth it! Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and good humor. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time with your questions or concerns.

Peace,

Lisa Pickering Events and Facilities Manager [email protected] 2/21/2019
