Today, I’m a meth head

dung snow

My symptoms are a bit of a headache, a bit of nausea, dizziness, drowsiness…

For the past six hours I’ve been breathing in methane, not that I wanted to.

We had yet another plumbing catastrophe in the church of Holy Redeemer in Andrews.

  • A plumber came over.
  • The town water / sewerage guy came over.
  • The diocesan property specialists were contacted.
  • Advice from diocesan lawyers was had.
  • Suggestions were made.

But it’s the weekend. Nothing can be done until Monday. So…

The Vigil Mass is cancelled as the Community Center is busy on Saturday.

Sunday Mass in Andrews is moved to 11:15 AM in the Community Center about a mile away on the far side of Main Street in town.

We’ll see what happens on Monday. I’m hoping insurance can pay for documenting what’s wrong, for doing the fix, the cleanup, the disinfection. There may just be some routing work, but maybe some backhoe work, maybe some tearing up the concrete floor of the basement.

The good part is we can offer this for the release of the souls in purgatory. :-)

    With God, there is always a “good part”. You are so reminding us to focus on that good part, even in sewage situations. Oh, but I am hoping all is fixed, like tomorrow!

    Prayers for you, the situation, and the poor souls! God bless you, Father!

    I don’t know which saint would have jurisdiction for plumbing-related problems, so I just said a Hail Mary for your intentions, Father. And added two extra ones for good measure. Good luck!!!

    Prayers to St Vincent Ferrer.
