A Busy Summer on Campus

There is a shared sentiment of disbelief around town and around campus as the question of “Where did the summer go?” is pondered. While it may have passed quickly, I hope that the summer break offered moments of true joy, time for restorative rest and opportunity to connect with the Spirit dwelling within.  Each of these will fuel us on the next leg of our shared journey.

The summer months on campus have been busy with projects that included the refinishing the hardwood floors in the Rauch Memorial Gymnasium, restoration of the retaining wall on the corner of Decatur and North 2nd Street as well as replacing a floor in the Pre-Primary classroom. Classroom painting, a new AC unit and some new carpeting will help to enhance the learning environments. The Mater Garden has been restored thanks to a gift from the Flynn family.

On Monday the long awaited ‘big reveal’ with occur with the blessing and ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating both the new school entrance and office suite as well as the restoration of the Anna Dowling, RSCJ Rose Garden given by the Murphey family. Local officials, including the Mayor, will be present along with many who helped to make this project move from an idea on paper to a functional portry to be enjoyed for years to come. 

I look forward to celebrating this special moment with our community and seeing you there!
