"Welcoming, charitable, and empowered
to live the Gospel"
Our Mother of Good Counsel,
located in Bryn Mawr, PA,
just 20 minutes west of Philadelphia,
Labor Day is a holiday that can bring a mix of emotions. It is a time of year we experience change and celebration.
For children, it is time to go back to school. Ugh! It is time for Fall sports to start up. Yeah! And oh yes, we should get started on that summer reading soon! For parents, it is time for children to go back to school. Yeah! Summer vacation is over. Ugh! And did I mention that children are going back to school? Yeah!
In reality, any holiday that celebrates the American Work Ethic is truly a reason to celebrate. Here at the parish of Our Mother of Good Counsel, we are celebrating different changes - the finishing of several projects to our campus, and the continuation of several others.
Along with Harcum College, our tenant in the school, we were able to complete some major renovations to our facilities. These included an elevator for our school building, as well as major electrical upgrades. This elevator has created much needed accessibility for anybody who would like to visit our school building. Some of our other ongoing projects include: enhancing our parish kitchen and other improvements to the gym, replacing and installing some new fencing on the property, handicapped bathrooms, upgrading some of our heating and cooling systems, and some improvements to our parking lot. Believe it or not, we are even one step closer to the Pennswood Bridge Project beginning ???. (Anyone who had the 2015-2016 school year in the “When will the bridge project finally happen?” pool just may be a winner!) All these enhancements are continuing to keep our parish a place where all are welcome!
Seeing Harcum College, whom we are very happy and proud to have with us and our parish, make such a financial and long term commitment to our physical plant is rewarding to me as both a parishioner and staff member. They have been nothing but helpful and generous since we began working with them.
Thank you to everyone, especially our parishioners, who have given their time, talent, treasure, and especially patience during these last several months.
See you around the grounds,
