It’s what we’re calling, “Non-Profit: Behind the Scenes.”
You might call it the nitty-gritty of the job.
As I’ve mentioned before, there are currently a lot of transitions occurring at Benedict Inn. One of these is the demolition of a building that, along with our main space, originally formed part of OLG Academy back in the day. With the loss of this space, we’re now moving around a lot of storage. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. Our office supplies are being reorganized, inventory for the gift shop is being shifted, and lots of random boxes and knick-knacks are being discovered.
So is this job just a bunch of heavy lifting or am I actually learning? Of course I am! We all know this isn’t the most enjoyable job, or even the best use of our time, but it is necessary. We’re keeping the gears turning for Benedict Inn. Without keeping our space in order, Benedict Inn could not function. I realize that we’re tackling the troublesome but necessary tasks so that the ministry can continue…and that if you run a non-profit, you’re often in charge of all this yourself. However, fortunately, I’m also witnessing the willingness of everyone in the ministry to pitch in and help!
Out with the old, in with the new…..just in time for Easter (which this year I will be celebrating with my wonderful boyfriend and the OLG community at Vigil Mass on Saturday!)
