We have a construction trailer at the site of the Chapel of Saints Peter and Paul and we should see some dirt moving any day now. The ground breaking was cancelled due to a down pour but we got great press coverage anyway. As people look back at newspapers years from now the ground breaking for the Chapel will go down in history as a great event even though it didn't actually happen. We will probably have a blessing of the site in the next few days but keep it pretty low key.

I'll do my best to keep you posted on Chapel progress as the construction gets under way.

I guess you may start to think this blog should be called the building priest instead of the running priest but I really have been running. I'll have to get organized and get another set of runs underway. It was just about this time last year that the original idea for therunningpriest.blogspot.com came to me while I was running!!!!!!!!

Thanks to all who have supported my efforts. God bless America on July 4, 2010!!!!!!!!!
