We discovered that the mailing was initially delayed because the layout did not meet a new postal regulation. Fortunately the postmaster was kind enough to grant us an exemption and you should have your Annual Report soon.

The movie "Into Temptation" about a priest opens Friday at the Dundee theater and will run through the 25th. This independent film was written and directed by a friend of Fr. Damain's. Even though the priest character's last name rhymes with Zuerlein, it is entirely fictional. The movie is R rated because, as Fr Damian explained, the priest encounters some people who are "not nice people and they use language typical of Hollywood." He says, "It's a good movie, but not for children." Do not forget, it is fiction.
If you get a chance to see it, come back to this post and comment.
