The Pope has a long message for Lent. Please read and reflect on it.
Last year the music leaders approached me as well as the Finance Council about the instruments in our church. They wanted to replace the 16 years old electric piano, a new one would cost around $5000. The Finance Council turned it down since we had other priorities. Last week a recently widowed parishioner gave me a cheque of $5000, in my name, to do anything I’d like (unfortunately she didn’t mean for my new golf clubs or my vacation). I will bypass the Finance Council this time (sorry guys!) and use the money to buy a new electric piano. The present one will be moved to the hall for any social functions. Thanks to this lady! She doesn’t want me to mention her name, so I won’t.
