As you can see, the Our Lady of Guadalupe parking lot project is moving ahead.  I am happy to see that so much has been accomplished.
I want to thank our parishioners for your patience during the project.  I also want to remind everyone to not park on the grass, in the right turn exit or around the central circle.  We now have ample parking for everyone.
Also, we will be looking to do another small project at Our Lady of Guadalupe in the near future.  That project is to replace the current pressed concrete entrance way to the central front door.  It will be replaced either partly or entirely with a regular concrete walkway.  This would be much more user friendly to those in wheelchairs, with walkers or canes, and to those who have some trouble walking.  We will soon be getting bids for this work.
Lastly, I want to let you know that the parish is giving you an early Christmas gift.  I am happy to give you a free subscription to Formed.  This has been called a Catholic Netflix where you will find entertaining and informative movies, enlightening programs, inspiring talks and a great selection of popular e-books. All of this is just a click away!
I ask you to give it a try.  I am sure that you will find something for yourself as well as something for other family members.  To register, go to stannbb.formed.org ; click “Register”; enter your name, email address and desired password.  You’re all set!  You are now ready to access the inspiring and engaging content on Formed.

Have a great Bethany Beach Week!
