St.Peter's Project Update

Our Team was made up of over 20 people per day. We had 3 Boylan students and 1 Guilford student participate. The St. Peters Parishioners took ownership and pride in the project. As other needs arise in the school you now have a strong team to accomplish the tasks. We started each day with a reflection prayer service that helped us center on our project at hand and why God has given us the strength to use our talents to assist others.

• We accomplished the removal of the carpet in four classrooms, cleaning and staining of the woodwork as well as the first floor hallway.
• Completed the cleaning and staining of the windows and handrails in the west section of the school.
• Leveled the floor in one of the rooms by removing part of the floor and installing a sheet of plywood. • Replaced all of the insulation on the hot water pipes floor to ceiling in the 4 classrooms.
• Replaced the sink cabinet and plumbing in the second grade class room.
• Updates to the 4 rooms included; computer cable rerouting, cleaning and adjustment to the windows, which should now open a little easier.
• A Window Team was brought together to take ownership of the window maintenance and repair.

 The professional carpet installers will complete the carpet installation on Sunday the 7th. Thank you for the gifts that God has given the team members.

Thank you to the ladies and staff for providing us with the snacks and lunch. Thank you to the St. Peters students, staff and others for their prayers in supporting the team. Thank you to Father Beekman for his guidance in bringing the St. Peters Team together to make a difference.

On behalf of St. Joseph and Sons, Stewards of the Carpenter, we appreciate the opportunity to be part of this project.

New Project at St.Peter Cathedral School

Hello Fellow Joes

We are preparing to start a new project at the St. Peter Cathedral School in Rockford this upcoming weekend.

The plan is to remove the existing carpet in various classrooms and prepare the floors for new carpet to be installed early next week. We're asking for volunteers to aid in removing desks & furniture, clean rooms as best we can and prepare the flooring for professionals to lay the new carpet.

Times for the project are as follows:
Friday, Oct. 5th      1 pm - 5 pm
Saturday, Oct. 6th   7 am - 5 pm

We will meet in the school parking lot to divide up into teams so we can maximize efforts on the work details.

We already have a good group of Joes confirmed for this effort including some of the newest Joes from the St. Peter's parish. Join us if you can - the more the merrier. If interested please contact Bill at

Thanks again for your support and dedication.
