      “Well, we’ve had an interesting couple of days. It’s been quite a winter storm coming here late in February. I guess God wanted us all to slow down a little. I pray that everyone has been safe. Never hesitate to call if I can help with anything. I’m always happy to bring communion or anointing to anyone in need, or to lend a hand for anything else, especially those nearby here in town.
     “Fr. Phil Niekamp agreed to come again for a penance service here at MPH on Thursday, March 14. St. George in Linn has a penance service scheduled for this Tuesday evening at 7 pm.
     “You all stay safe out there. Spring must be near.”...Fr. Dave
