KUDOS to our grounds crew who did yeomen's work throughout the night on Tuesday and all day Wednesday clearing the 5+ inches of snow from our parking lot, walkways and even from the tops of cars.
The snowday on Wednesday and delayed opening on Thursday, coupled with Presidents' Day on Monday (so people could take a HUGE six-day vacation if they took today off as well) might account for the meager attendance at Thursday's Food For Thought. Fr. John Brinkman presented the faith approach to global climate change as articulated in Copenhagen to a diminished group of eight Maryknollers and six employees.
Perhaps I am partly to blame for not blogging about the Food For Thought in a more timely manner. I know Fr. John McAuley had actually planned on leading a delegation from Taiwan to attend the talk which I had incorrectly advertised for last week. The good news is that Ms. Maureen Touhey videoed the presentation and may be willing to send you a copy just in time for your Lenten penances.
Speaking of which, Maryknoll will hold its semi-annual blood drive this coming Tuesday, February 16, just in time for Mardi Gras. A special supper will again pick up the theme of "Laissez les bon temps rouller!"
