On Sunday, March 13, following the 10:45am Mass, Father Bateman and a group of parishioners gathered in the parish parking lot to bless the ground for our new offices. Construction. It's an important moment in the life of our parish, as we begin an expansion that will better serve our parish and school. The Parish Office, located along North Broad Street, will have offices for Regina Plummer (parish secretary), Mary Little (finance), Father Bateman and a "yet-to-be-named" development director. In addition it will have a multi-purpose area and a meeting area (able to be divided into two small meeting rooms). There will also be restrooms and an area in which to serve coffee and refreshments.
The school office building will become the main entrance to the school building - housing the school secretary, a private office for the principal of the school, our Director of Religious Education (Peg Wagaman), the Lincoln Intermediate Unit (the big yellow van) will have space in the building for our students, restrooms and a meeting room (again including a refreshment area).
It's all very exciting as this new phase of our parish development begins!
