   Saint Agatha Parish is a Christian Community of Catholics from Milton, Quincy and beyond whose
   mission is to demonstrate love by:

  • Proclaiming and celebrating God’s presence on earth.
  • Being open and welcoming to all.
  • Reaching out to our sisters and brothers near and far.
  • Providing opportunities for prayer, service, education and recreation.

Mercifully, we’re nearing the end of the boiler replacement and compressor replacement and the weekly Operations Note can turn to other things! At this point I thought it would be helpful to re-cap what the issues were and what the corrective action needed to involve. The air conditioning unit which cools the Lower Church only– which was completed nine years ago - has two compressors which operate in tandem. One of those compressors failed, so the remaining compressor was carrying the entire load.
Not only was this a strain on the remaining compressor, but if that compressor failed, there would be no air conditioning in the Lower Church. (Note that two separate compressor units provide air conditioning
for the Upper Church) This project was completed a week ago last Thursday and the system is now running normally. On the heating side, the single boiler which had heated both the Upper and Lower Churches for 35+ years began to fail last December. One of the gaskets separating two of the internal chambers burst causing the boiler room to fill with steam,
which summoned the Fire Department, and resulted in a very expensive emergency repair. Fortunately no other gaskets burst over the winter and we managed to make it through the heating season. As this note is being written the two new smaller 97% efficient boilers have been installed and Cox Engineering is installing the new flues in the Church chimney to accommodate the boilers and is doing the insulation.
The entire project was to be completed last
Wednesday and looked to be on schedule. People continue to be generous in their support of these projects as the thermometer demonstrates. We also will be filing an application for a rebate from National Grid for which we qualify and which will save us up to $8,000.

Peace

Prayer for Peace     Pope John XXIII
Lord Jesus Christ, you are called the Prince of Peace, you are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, "Peace to you," grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love.
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.
May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters.
May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.

Get Involved Although the body has many parts, it is one body. We, though many, are one body in Christ. We are the Church. Not a building. Not the staff of the parish, not the hierarchy alone --- all of us together are Church and all of us must respond to the Holy Spirit and build the Kingdom of God. Give some thought and prayer to trying one of the parish ministries if you are not involved already. Click here for a list of ministries. It will benefit you, it will benefit us as a community and it will spread the Good News.
