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 19
Well, the last two days have been productive, challenging, hot, hot, hot.
Wednesday we spent the day at College St Louis ... updated laptops in both classrooms and teachers lounge, 5 teachers, Fr Ernest, Fr Luxo.
After a sweaty hike back to the house, sitting to cool off a bit with about a liter of cool water, I headed up for a shower.  Normally, that's a cool refreshing experience, but today the water was almost hot ... never hot water!  That told me water in the roof tank was getting low. 

We've not had city power that last 2 nights, so haven't been able to pump water from the well which seems to be running dry!  Next thing, about bed time we realized the coffee jar was empty.  AARRRRGGGG!  So the prospect of a night with no fans, getting up to no water and no coffee to brew in whatever fashion made for a great view of Thursday morning.  Running downtown to Heine Bros or Starbucks ain't an option!
So the way Wednesday night played out, the batteries gave out about 1:30 or so.  Don had already decided to sleep on the couch, so he ran the small generator several times so the fans came on once in awhile.  Still had a bit of water coming out of the tap.  Mia had poured some left over coffed into a pot, so we fired up the gas stove and had some day or two old coffee that wasn't all bad!


Don and I spent most of the day at College St Louis again finished the classrooms, getting machines in storage updated and taking care of 2 more teachers.  As of this afternoon we've upgraded 150 laptops!  Two elementary schools to go!
Got to meet Ketlie, a teacher who came on board after my last visit, saw others I hadn't seen thus far.  Hugs all around!  Great folks to work with.


We're praying for City Power tonight.  I teased Fr Ernest this afternoon ... asked him if it was part of the National Flag Day celebrations.  He seems perplexed at the power issue. 
Guess that's enough stuff for the moment.  I hear the weather in Louisville is getting nice.  Enjoy it!
