With the recent rains, it is no wonder that IHM had several inches of water in the basement. Too bad that the sump pump was the size you would expect for a residential basement. It was many days before the water was finally extracted. The basement stinks. There's no dehumidifier, only a fan.
This is no way to take care of a property. Imagine having to live there.
We hear about stewardship all the time, but when the opportunity to demonstrate it arises, parish leadership falls flat.
Of course, the latest rumor is that a national donut chain is buying part or all of IHM property. Perhaps they will spring for a sump pump.
