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 17,
Well the trip to Jeremie went pretty much as anticipated.  The only variation was when we arrived in Port au Prince.  Roger the charter pilot had a client who needed a ride to Jacmel, so we flew from PauP across the peninsula to the south coast, landed in Jacmel (which had a nice paved runway).  Lawrence jumped off, grabbed his bags and we were off again.  Then we flew back over the mountain to the north side and on to Jeremie.
Fr Ernest was there with his heart warming smile to greet us.  I must say that the road from the landing strip in to Jeremie is getting worse.  We bounced a lot!  Many grunts and groans!  20+ minutes of some sort of exercise that I can't recommend.


Today, Don and I headed to St Jean Bosco for the first Windows 10 upgrade effort.  By 11:00 AM we were close to wrapping up 18 laptops.  We were excited and relieved that things went as smoothly as they did.  Some minor snags in the Windows update cycle prolonged things a bit, but by 1:30 or 2:00 we called it done.
This picture is of low interest, but it does show a classroom.


While we were waiting in PauP for Roger to get some more gas in his plane, I did weaken a bit.  We're always accosted by vendors selling crafts of some sort.  Here's my acquisition!

It is so good to see the people here that we work with.  Hugs every time!
Sleep last night was not good.  Heat is really oppressive.  And then there are the barking dogs!  May kill a few tonight!
Time to wrap it up.
Peace, Dave
