The Saint Mary and Saint Joseph Rectory and Offices has been invaded by a massive infestation of bedbugs. I have no idea how they got in, but between staying in Dayton occasionally for classes overnight and the heavy traffic in and out of the offices downstairs, I am not surprised. I am told that Union City has something of a bed bug problem. At least now I know why I haven’t been able to sleep well the last five months or so.
At any rate, paying for exterminators to get these pests out of my living and working space is not going to be cheap. In fact, it will run just south of $2,000. If you are outside of my parishes and would like to help finance this necessary, but unforeseen expense, I would be most grateful.
