    I had a call from Sister Claire at Sacred Hearts this afternoon; unfortunately she has to cancel lace in Wareham this month.  Father Stan is not well and has some medical appointments.  I don't have particulars at the moment but will share them when/if I can.

    I have gotten news that the summer issue of the IOLI bulletin has been delayed due to health issues.  The editor is now working with the publisher to get it out, so I would expect that it should show up soon.
