Praying for Daily Needs

Dear Parishioners,

Our kitchen/hall renovation project is progressing but not as quickly as we had hoped. In preparing the kitchen floor for an epoxy covering, we found some asbestos in the lower levels of tiles. There was no danger since each level contained whatever was beneath it. However, since we were removing all three levels of tile, we had to have an abatement company come in and remove all of the asbestos. It was completed last Thursday, air samples were tested by an industrial hygienist, and the kitchen was found to be asbestos free. Praise God.

This week we will be pouring the epoxy in the kitchen and next week installing the new kitchen equipment. Then in early August we will start the abatement process in the hall after which we will lay some new tiles and then painting the walls to finish the job. Since the scripture readings this weekend deal with prayer, and in particular, prayer for our daily needs (Genesis 18:20-32; Colossians 2:12-14; Luke 11:1-3), let one of our daily petitions be for the timely completion of our kitchen/hall renovation project to give the good people of St. Jane Frances a facility of which they can truly be proud.

“How pleasing to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament is
the short quarter of an hour that we steal from our
occupations, from something of no use, to come and pray
to Him, to visit Him, to console Him.”
