Project Updates

The guys went out this past weekend to finish off a couple of projects that have been in the works - Bishop Lane Retreat's Walking Path and the Cross Renovation on the grounds of the Poor Clares.

Joe led groups of five working on the walking path both Friday evening and Saturday morning with a small group staying over at the retreat house Friday night for some brotherhood and spiritual enlightenment. THANK YOU to the staff at Bishop Lane for the great breakfast and lunch on Saturday.

The teams worked to remove several stumps, cut back encroaching foliage, added trail markers as well as hand level and re-mulch the path. Joe mentioned we will need to set another date for finishing off the last 80 feet of leveling and the final 800 feet of mulching.

Tom also led a group of five working on the garden cross and corpus at the Poor Clares facility on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. The crew removed the cross and corpus to a safe location within a garage, demolished 1-1/2 yards of concrete including a section of sidewalk and then stripped the finish from the cross and cleaned the corpus.

Tom figures we will need at least one and perhaps two more work sessions to pour new concrete and install final landscaping elements including top soil, plant material, and a small stone wall at the site.
