Sorry this took so long, but I was doing some thinking.
We always have needs, (why would we be any different)
I have three projects in the plans at the moment, none of which the diocese will fund, fact is they cut our budget.
This is the preferred project that would directly affect the students. We have a computer lab with 4 computers on a broadband connection. The newest of these computers is about 3 years old and the rest are more like 5-6 years old. They just can't do the job. I would like to purchase 4 new computers, networking ready, a new printer and then use the newest old unit as a server. This project would be my preference because it will directly impact our students.
Thanks VERY much, we really appreciate it!

Easter Sunday evening mass April 11, 2004 was for the intentions for Dorene & Jerry's honor.
Wow! What a surprise to find an angel appear to us today with yet another
gift. We at the Newman Center appreciate your remembrance and generosity!!
For this Sunday's Mass (December 12) we have added the following prayer:
"For Dorene and Jerry Hammes in thanksgiving for their generosity; we pray;
Lord hear our prayer".
We wish you and your wife health, happiness and a joyous Christmas.
The smallest gifts to this group produce this greatest meaningful 'Thanks"
