Please welcome Supply Priest, Father Edward Thompson this coming Sunday, August 6th. Father Michael will be on vacation for a few days.
This week will be the hottest July 2023 on record! I know I don’t have to tell you that! Everyone is feeling the heat and drought conditions. As of August 1, the Daily Trib said it marks the 25th consecutive days of triple-digit temperatures in the Highland Lakes, and the current forecasts are predicting this excessive heat will likely continue through August.
Because these drought conditions continue to worsen by the day, the City of Burnet will implement Stage 3 Restrictions of the Drought Contingency Plan on Thursday, August 3. This means that the City will allow residential and commercial watering once per week according to the last digit of your street address: MondayTuesWedThursFri 1-2 3-4 5-6 7-8 9-0 You can water on your scheduled days only during the night and morning between 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
Pray for rain!!
Renovations are continuing. The date for the Parish Hall kitchen cabinets to be demo’d is Wednesday, August 9. Then the new cabinets will be installed on Thursday, August 10. Fingers crossed that this occurs as planned!
We have received three bids for painting the Youth Center. A decision on the contractor will be made soon!
The restoration committee will have a total of two estimates from vendors to clean the ductwork in the Nave. The second vendor will be coming out next week to give an estimate. We’re finding that the smaller ductwork cleaning companies are not set up for cleaning high ceiling ducts. Only the larger commercial companies have that equipment. Progress is slow but continues!
We are still hopeful to meet our goal of Labor Day for most of the renovations. We will keep everyone updated as we continue pushing for Labor Day.
