A message from Fr. William:
Please welcome our new sexton, Mr Jorge Gonzalez! He will begin officially on September 22.
Jorge has lived in Sheboygan for some time and brings varied work experience and a warm smile as he works along with us at Grace. With his help, our beautiful building will continue to be the clean and inviting place it has always been. He will be doing floor mopping in our most trafficked areas, some dusting and window cleaning.
Please know that our sexton position is somewhat reduced from what it has been in years past. This means, among other things, that we will continue to empty our own trash after events we host, wipe down counters we use, etc. You all are so good about doing this already. So, thank you!
A very special THANK YOU to Pat Ford-Smith, who has taken on so many cleaning tasks these many months since we have been without a paid sexton and to Jack Britton and Pat Miller for carrying this load, too. Blessings to any others who have done cleaning and whose names I am not aware of.
Please thank this stalwart crew and please welcome Jorge when you meet him!
