  “This week I’ll be at the Lake of the Ozarks with the other priests of the Jefferson City Diocese and our Bishop for our annual Priest’s institute. I’m sure you’ll all carry on fine without me. Take care of things here and pray for your priests, bishop, and diocese.
     “PSR classes started well last Wednesday. We are again grateful for the volunteers who are leading the classes. Parents should offer to help in any way they can: cleaning the classrooms, offering to assist, bringing snacks (on occasion!), making copies, etc. I’m sure the teachers would appreciate it. Please see that your child is at the hall by 7 pm sharp, and pick them up on time at 8:15. Thanks.
     “The Catholicism video series starts this week. If you haven’t signed up, please come anyway – we would be happy to have you.”...Fr. Dave
