Today in this page you will find: (1) a reminder about the upcoming Potluck Picnic at the RCH, and (2) news from the last Volunteer Work Day.
(1) It's been a long tradition to welcome with a Potluck Picnic the Brothers' novices arriving for their summer desert time at the RCH. As you know, unfortunately this year we won't have any novices; nevertheless, we will be welcoming the novices of our Apostolic Sisters from Princeville, IL, who are coming to spend a month of their desert time instead of Brothers. This is why we would be very happy to have you join us for this occasion at the RCH on Saturday, June 22nd. At 11:00 am we will have Mass, followed by a Potluck Picnic (please bring some food you'd like to share with others), as well as an open house event (for those who wish). Bring your family and friends: All are welcome!
(2) On Saturday June 8th, we welcomed 26 people to our Spring Volunteer Work Day. To view photos, please click here or on the picture.
This time we focused most on clearing up the ravine just across the "Patience" cabin, over decades filled with dry branches. By the end of the day there was no more of this potential fire hazard, and the paths were covered with mulch and wood prepared for our winter visitors. We also got cleared a spot for the future garage/storage house. Special thanks go to Zach, Tommy and Jonathan Kaisers, who spent a day with their dad on Thursday to chainsaw a huge amount of fallen trees, which were split for wood stove on Saturday by volunteers. We had again the Knights of Columbus from St. Thomas More parish in Centennial, CO (thanks to their donation, we were able to rent the necessary equipment for the day), a few Catholic Young Adult Sports missionaries, and several other friends. We were spoiled again by a fantastic lunch cooked by Fr. Francis Therese and Mauricio, and experienced one more time the beauty of working together for the glory of God and the good of our neighbor. We’ll be scheduling another work day in the fall. Meanwhile, see you all on June 22nd at our Potluck Picnic!
We are so thankful for your support. Please be assured of our fervent prayers for all of your intentions.
Regina Caeli, ora pro nobis!
Tom and Gigi Kaiser
Br. Francis of the Child Jesus
