Upstairs, downstairs... This morning at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton parish the upstairs was filled with aromas of delicious goodies being prepared for our Apple Festival THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, from 10am to 7pm. The kitchen crew was hard at work. Downstairs in the Rectory Conference Room the parish staff gathered for our weekly time of prayer and planning. On Tuesdays we gather to pray mid-day prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours, then discuss issues facing the parish and plan for upcoming seasons and events. Today we welcomed the purchasing agent for Harrisburg Catholic Administrative Services as he told us about discounts available through purchasing agreements with various vendors and suppliers, then moved on to look ahead in the parish calendar at what's coming up in the weeks and months ahead. Listening to him, we immediately saved about $700 in upcoming purchases, with more savings to come. All in all, not a bad morning.
Rev. Msgr. William J. King
