The lady in the pew has, through means of her own, found out what's going on. And so may I now present:
August 4, 2006 Meeting Agenda!
# 10) Ceremonial greetings to all VOTF members working at the chancery
# 9) Close chancery since most employees will be at VOTF meeting anyway
# 8) Can we change the "protect us from the devil" phrase in the "Saint Michael" prayer to "protect us from Mel Gibson"?
