Please return church keys: As many of you are aware, there have been several break-ins and thefts from Newburyport churches. We’re looking to upgrade our exterior keys. If you have a key, make sure to let a Council member know over the next few weeks! Also, please never leave doors unlocked with the key even when you are in the complex. Instead, block them open with the little wrenches provided, and don’t forget to unblock when you leave!!!!
Thermostat settings: The Parish Council has determined an acceptable temperature range for the thermostats in the building complex. 60-75 in winter, 65-80 in summer. Please respect these settings!
