The OLL Maintenance Committee has been working on many projects this past year. One of the projects was to provide a mini-split heat pump system for the John Paul II Chapel.
The Chapel has become more comfortable year-round
as the thermostat is set to heat or cool the room at the set temperature. It is an
energy efficient unit which provides a quiet, peaceful environment.
Safety Issues at OLL During Winter Months
For your safety during the winter months, please enter & depart through the entrances that have been shoveled or plowed. We try to clear all entrances as quickly as possible. Please use the handrails by the steps and wear appropriate footwear for snowy & icy conditions. These precautions will help to ensure your safety. Thank you!
