GETTING ACQUAINTED
I know its October when the weather starts cooling off and everything else starts heating up. Baseball is
into its post season hoopla, Football rivalries are warming up in high schools, colleges and even among some of
the professional teams. I guess if those don’t bring out the beast in any of us there are political races that will
rile us up and burn up lots of nerves and energy. There will also be a lot more money burned as well, but, hey, it
seems like everything costs money these days.
I remember when I was younger and first joined the Knights of Columbus and got to know some of the
older members who were prominent in business and in their parishes. Sometimes they would talk about what it
was like to run a business and I had the good sense to sit and listen and ask an occasional question. I’ve always
been interested in how things work. One of the lessons I learned was that there is no real substitute for the
money you have to spend. It seems that you can’t run a million dollar business on half or even three quarters of
a million dollars.
We are presented with important things to consider every day and we are called upon to make important
decisions more often than we realize. Some of these decisions have consequences that demand even more consideration than even the wiser among us are prepared to give them. We sports fans can wait until next year for
our favorite teams, but there are matters that affect our public business that demand more immediate attention.
Don’t let your business run itself.

Diocesan Youth Days
SWAT Team Visits JWCC
Students in grades 6, 7, and 8 recently
attended a Diocesan Youth Day event at the Oakley Lindsay Center along with students from the
other Quincy Catholic Schools. The event was
organized by our parish DREs and was led by national speaker Rick Curran. The theme of this
year’s event was to live out the call of Pope Francis to evangelize and live out our life of service
by being Christ to each other. The students participated in variety of theme based fun and
thought-filled activities throughout the day to
help them understand how they can each make a
difference.
Students in grades 5-8 have the opportunity to participate in an after school computer program know
as SWAT (Students Working to Advance Technology). The group meets monthly for technology activities beyond what they are learning during the
school day. Sometimes they meet in the computer
lab for particular activities. They often have the
chance to travel off campus for some unique hands
-on experiences. Recently the SWAT team traveled to the computer lab at John Wood Community
College to meet with instructor Barb Stoll. They
learned about the software drawing program
Adobe Illustrator, and were able to try out the program for themselves.
