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 22
I have some catching up to do ...
Don and I have been working our fingers to the bone not only Upgrading computers to Windows 10, but also updating software, getting rid of viruses, general cleanup.
The day were were working at the Brother Paulin School, some of the students were curious about what we were doing to their computers and wanted to help!


I've mentioned that we work with some delightful people here.  Jean Marie, Josselyn, John Davidson and Allenz stopped in for a visit.


On Sunday, Gary wanted to take a break and go to the beach.  Now that may sound rather idylic ... we're out here in the Caribbean and a day at the beach is a natural.  But getting there is the fun part.  Phillipe arranged for a driver with a SUV to take us.  Sounds nice, but AC is not something one finds in working condition here ... and shock absorbers are long past having any value.  So bouncing back the road almost all the way to the airport was a test of patience.  I've got to add that on the way back, Rose sat between Don and I and commented that it was an improvement that she had a soft landing on either side of her!
After 20-30 minutes on the road, we parked and hike down the cliff to a rather nice little beach.  Good breeze and the sound of the waves took away some of the ordeal getting there.  Rose just had to climb a rock ... with some assistance from Phillipe and Baba.

There were also a couple of dugout canoes!

While at the beach a young white man came from the brush area along the cliff.  Franko, a young civil engineer from Colorado.  He's with a non-profit - Bridges to Prosperity - working on a bridge project south west of Jeremie.  He came by for supper, good talking to a different person.
