St. Joseph’s Catholic Church

C&A is proud to support St. Joseph's Catholic Church's work in the community through their bulletin every Sunday. They have a history of serving the Sykesville area for over 150 years. The first definite plans to form a Catholic congregation in Sykesville were made in 1852. Several hundred Catholic families had settled in the county. The Jesuits, who came from Frederick on horseback and the Sulpicians, who had established St. Charles Preparatory College eight miles south of Sykesville, occasionally offered Mass and administered the sacraments at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Orrelana H. Owings. After St. Joseph’s first pastor, the Right Rev. Msgr. Barnard McManus, left in 1853 to erect St. John’s Church in Baltimore, the pastors from St. Paul’s in Ellicott City tended to the needs of the people in this little mission church. In 1864, Archbishop Martin John Spalding decided to erect several church buildings in the

Before and during the winter, coolant and transmission exchanges are two important vehicle maintenance services to have performed to prevent unplanned, and expensive, service work during the cold months. So far this winter we have had several vehicles come needing major repairs that could have been avoided. Two problems seem to be the most common—internal engine damage due to antifreeze freezing and transmission failure. Preventing Engine Damage from Coolant Issues Once the coolant (antifreeze) starts to freeze it expands. Since it is inside the engine, it has nowhere to expand to, so it breaks whatever is in the way. The repair could vary from a hose to a engine. The repairs bills are often in the thousands and it could have been avoided with a simple maintenance check and service. Overtime the freezing point of antifreeze rises for several different reasons.
