    Lenten Pilgrimage Lent is a pilgrimage anyone can go on. It also reminds us that in our lives here on earth we really are pilgrims. Pilgrimage is a powerful Christian theme, but it’s one we don’t always have the strongest sense of these days. We understand work and vacation, we understand traveling and destinations, but pilgrimage isn’t a word that slips off our tongue or that has much resonance for many of us. Pilgrimage was always seen as a giving up of one’s normal life to go to a place of encounter with God. God reveals Himself in our sacrifice, along the journey, and at the moment of glory when we make it to the place we Hoped to find. Our very own Stephen Cieslak is now in his second year of theology in Rome. This past December he was able to go on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and he prayed for us at these places of encounter with the Lord. He has been gracious enough to share some of the graces he received on this pilgrimage with us. On our webpage, we are posting one reflection of each week on the Facebook feed, may it strengthen your Lenten pilgrimage and inspire your desire to encounter the Lord. I hope you get a chance to read and follow along with Stephen and let his pilgrimage inspire yours. A note on our facilities— -Water damage: The water mitigation is nearly complete, but there continues to be a small leak that we are trying to find. We have had multiple companies collaborating with us on trying to find and fix the leak(s). It is small, but we don’t want to put things back until everything is sealed properly. This means Shelly and Marge continue over 2 months of being displaced from their offices. They have been magnanimous throughout this time, be we hope to get them back to normal soon. So far costs have been around $20k and insurance has covered all. - Master Plan: We have finished 2 discovery workshops along with meetings with staff and ministry leaders, thank you for all of you who came and gave input. This phase is important so that we hear from you as to what you see as our needs and what you want for our parish and school. It is important to me that we get to hear from as many perspectives as possible so we can make the best decisions. The next phase will be Di Loreto working with the city codes and putting into draft form the information/needs we have passed on to them. They will then come up with a few options for us to look at to meet our needs. If you have further input do not hesitate to let me or anyone on the facilities committee or administrative council know – at this stage the more information we can learn, the better.
