Dear Friends in Christ,

 I want to tell you how delighted I have been and thankful for all of you who have been faithfully attending on Saturdays and Sundays in spite of the unfinished state of the new church. It is truly a testimony to your faithfulness and love for the Church.
Building Update
 We are finally at the stage of the final review for the issuance of the complete building permit. Everything up until this point has been piecemeal. The final mechanical inspection (i.e., largely the HVAC system) was passed (with minor corrections required). The corrections have been made, and the inspector has approved beginning to fill the insulation prior to covering the interior walls.
Other notes
Thanks to the efforts of some of our members, we will have generator power available until the building is fully electrified. That means that if you want to bring any sort of hot dish for trapeza/fellowship, power to keep your device hot will be available.
Thank you all again for your generosity and perseverance!
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Christopher
