RECENTLY RETIRED? Have you had experience in caring for property?
Or just plain common sense? Much to do, keeping an eye on the state of things,
contacting firms etc; time-consuming valuable work. Otherwise it falls on the priest,
who has less time for that and who anyway should not take the laity’s responsibility
off them! – God has been good to us; let us give back to him through serving his people
Help also in accounts, please. These tasks serve God and his people, and they free up
the clergy to do their proper thing. Other tasks, too. Please ask!.
