— I think our summer is over, it has turned to fall. We even had a little nip of frost this week. It got down to 32 degrees one night. Rain is in the forecast this week, so the smoke should be under control.

Congratulations to Sister Barbara Jean Glodowski who won the President’s Award for the overall influence of the Benedictines on healthcare in southern Idaho. She recently retired from St. Luke’s Health System as director of mission and spiritual care.

CATHOLIC 200 is starting: This class will meet once a month on the first Tuesday of each month. You may attend one or all! The first class will be Tuesday, Oct. 3, 7 - 8:30 p.m., in the back room of St. Mary’s Church. The class is on the Bible and will be led by Sister Jeanette von Herman.

TMIY acronym for “That Man is You-The Revelation of the Father.” You are still welcome to join. We started a new year of TMIY on Tuesday, Sept. 12. We meet at the KC Hall, 6 a.m., every Tuesday. We welcome all returning men, men who used to attend, and any man 18 years and older who have not taken the opportunity to participate. This year considers man in his role as a father, grandfather, and spiritual father. We will use St. Joseph as a model for fatherhood. As Richard Lane quotes from the Bible, “iron sharpens iron”. We had ten men on Tuesday and there is room for more. The fall semester runs for 13 weeks. Contact Max Nuxoll at 208-507-1058 or Jim Chmelik at 208-962-7242 for information.

KC Roadside Cleanup: All KC members and their families are invited to participate in our roadside cleanup on Saturday, Sept. 23. Last time we had five individuals participate and more help is appreciated. We will meet 8 a.m. at the KC Hall for the mandatory safety briefing. We will depart immediately after the briefing heading north on Highway 95 to our two-mile stretch of road. We should be finished by 10:30 a.m. Come out and participate and support our community and our country. Idaho is too great to litter.
