Even though the weather obliged to postpone our traditional Fall Volunteer Work and Prayer Day from the initially planned September 10th to September 17th, we still had some 20 people coming to help with the work on the property. Please click here or on the picture below to see the photos of the event.
I want to thank all those who came (and those who couldn’t but prayed for us) for everything what was accomplished on that day: the new garage’s drain system reparation almost finished; many trees cut down and split for firewood; the steward’s firewood shed replenished for winter; Dome House windows cleaned, and more. We hope we will be able to finish whatever still needs to be finished on October 1st, during the Lithuanian VWPD.
Particular thanks to Tom Kaiser, our intrepid Director of Operations, Dave Lowrey, for having led the fixing of the garage drainage, Steve Hyatt, for donating again the legendary burritos for breakfast, and the Soto family who prepared an amazing Mexican lunch. One of the volunteers even asked me after the meal: “Do their run their own restaurant?..” 😊
Seeing all the amazing work accomplished at the RCH over these last years, I can only exclaim with St. Theresa of Avila:
“What a great favor God does to those He places in the company of good people!”
Thank you, Lord, for having favored the Hermitage, and me personally, with so many good and faithful people – indeed, true friends!
Deeply grateful, and keeping you all in my prayers,
Fr. Francis of the Child Jesus
