Just a brief note to let you know that we are anticipating some work on the church to begin soon. As you know there has been need for some years for the church to be re-pointed (my first summer here there were hornets nesting in the walls!). Beginning on June 11th and continuing until about the 17th, there will be an abatement of some asbestos on the exterior of the stained-glass windows. This work will be entirely in the exterior of the building and will be professionally contained and will pose no threat to anyone in the church, yet I want to make sure you are aware of it. On June 14th the re-pointing will begin and continue for a few weeks (actual timing will depend upon the weather. The contractors have assured us there will be minimal disruption to the use of the church (particularly weekday Mass), with work stopping or quiet work being done during Mass.
