Blessed Sacrament Chapel Mass

Happy Fathers’ Day to all our dads! We thank God for each of you and pray for our deceased dads as well. Our 9:00am Mass this weekend is offered for all our fathers.
Your reaction to our new sound system in the Church has been overwhelmingly positive – even enthusiastic. Last weekend, numerous people told me that they were so pleased to be able to hear everything that was said during Mass. I’m sure that not everyone is equally enthusiastic for one reason or another. Believe me, I wish it were possible to make decisions that please and satisfy everyone, but I know that is impossible. There is still some fine-tuning that will occur with the system, but for the most part, the work is completed. The new system cost $35,000. One individual specified that he wanted his contribution to the Capital Campaign to go toward this. If there are others who would like to demonstrate your satisfaction with the system by making additional donations, that would be a great help with our Restoration and Renewal project.
I will be on vacation this week. Next weekend, I will witness a nephew’s wedding in Mayfield. I will return to the Cathedral in time for the conclusion of Forty Hours on Sunday afternoon. Thanks to Fr. Brandon for his extra work during my absence.
Our meeting with the Diocesan Building Committee went very well last Monday evening. As I write this on Tuesday morning, we still have not received their official response.
Love, Fr. John
