August 15: Public Hearing on Forest Street Bike LanesFrom Eric Saathoff: The public hearing for the Forest Street bike lanes is this Wednesday, August 15, at 5:30 pm in St Paul's City Hall. The installation of bike lanes would involve removing parking from the east side of Forest Street. The public hearing is from 5:30 to 8:30pm, but the specific item is the very last on the agenda. If you feel strongly for or against the lanes please feel free to attend to testify or send a written statement to email@example.com.
Portal Icon Installation Date Set - and More from Nick PapasOur iconographer, Nick Papas, will be traveling to Minnesota on September 20 to begin installation of the mosaic portal icon of the Good Samaritan above the main doors of the church. Installation begins on Friday, September 20. (Between now and then, we need to install a durock cement backer board in the portal arch. If you have skills in that direction and can help, please contact Fr Jonathan soon.)
In other intriguing news from Nick, he has recently been working on an unusual project for someone used to working in churches - he was commissioned to do a large (floor-to-ceiling) alcove mural of the Life of St Arnold, patron saint of brewers ... at the St Arnold Brewery in Houston. He worked alongside artists of very different styles and backgrounds, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The Houston Chronicle has an article on the new brewery taproom and its artwork with lots of pictures, here.
