Kola Owolabi in Concert - Kelty Organ Recital, Saturday, March 25, 2017, 7:30 PM, Free & Open to Public 

Movie Night, Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 pm—Calvary is our Movie Night selection.  It is not a historical Jesus story, however it does contain an obvious Christ-figure in the lead character Fr. James (played by Brendan Gleeson).   Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia reviewed the movie in Cruxnow.com.  He stated that Gleeson gives the best performance of a good priest that he has seen in years.  Archbishop Chaput says the story makes this movie.   In the first scene a parishioner enters the confessional and from behind the screen and says he intends to kill Fr. James in a week from Sunday.  We, the audience, do not see the potential murderer-to-be, but Fr. James has recognized the voice of the parishioner.  He spends the next week doing his job and living among and trying to help a large number of eccentric characters while his Calvary approaches. Archbishop Chaput also cautioned that this movie is not for the young or more sensitive viewers.  This caveat is echoed in a review by John Mulderig of Catholic News Service that states "it's not for the summertime popcorn set" alluding to language, violence, and sensitive subject matter."  However... "mature viewers prepared for rugged material, on the other hand, will likely consider their investment of time and attention well rewarded."  So please join us if you can in the 2nd Floor of the Office Building.  Popcorn will be provided, and discussion of this powerful film follows.

May 15
Much has happened and many people have been in and out of Jeremie since my last trip last September.  I'll not attempt to catch up ... just talk about this trip.
As usual, lots of planning and packing decisions, middle of the night alarm to get up and head for the airport.  Don Kavanaugh drives from Jeffersonville to my house in the Highlands, I toss my bags in his car ... he's already got 4 Tek4Kids bags in the trunk that we loaded last week plus his stuff.  Then we drive to Jack Lydon's house.  Jack offered to take us to the airport where we'll meet up with Gary Boice.  Then Jack will bring Don's car back to his place till we return.  Jack goes beyond on everything.   Quite a friend!

The primary focus Don and I have is to upgrade the classroom and teacher laptops to Windows 10.  We've upgraded numerous computers in Louisville since last July.  We've had a variety of experiences, none bad.  We've done the on-line upgrade, we've used thumb drives loaded with Windows 10 and Don has a server configured to push the upgrade to clients.  In Jeremie the on-line upgrade is last choice because Internet speed is not what we see in the US ... but we expect to use all 3 methods ... and maybe we'll come up with Plan D on the fly!  Got to be creative in Ayiti.

Gary has at least a gazillion things on his list.  As usual, there's more on the lists than we'll ever get to and things not on the list that we'll have to address. 

We do plan to sit down with Fr Marc-Arthur, pastor of Cathedral St Louis, to see how things are going.  Although most of our trips relate to Tek4Kids, we always find time to pay attention to our Sister Parish.

So bear with me ... I'll add things as time permits ... I hope to have pictures to share as we go along.

And ... many have said they will keep us in their prayers.  It's hard to beat that!

Peace, Dave
