The story in today's [Plain Dealer] is accurate. He stated that Aug 1st is the target date but we don't know who will be first. He asked about what [Saint Mary] was like before the closure & what we expect in the future. We asked him why these questions weren't asked before we were closed. We will be meeting with him again in early June. Hopefully we will have more info & will be able to have another parish mtg to fill everyone in. At this point we can only be patient."
