As promised earlier, here are some updates on the RCH projects for this year, and the upcoming Spring Volunteer Work Day.
As you can see in the photo, so far the garage was (almost) completed! And the Wellhouse got a new roof, too.
Here are some other projects for this year:
This brings us to another traditional Spring Volunteer Work Day, which will be held this year on Saturday May 28th.
Besides the regular chainsawing, splitting, and mulching fallen trees on the property (this time mainly around the new garage), there will be the building of a rock wall to contain a hillslope behind the garage. We will also be moving stuff to the new storage area in the garage, and staining new outdoor chapel benches made this winter by Tony Knepp – many thanks, Tony! Tony also restored the bell, which now rings as it should - come and you will hear it by yourselves!
The flowerbeds will need a hand, too…
The program will be the same as always: 7:30am outdoor Mass, followed by burritos breakfast, then work until 12:45pm – Midday prayer and BBQ lunch, then again work until 5pm.
As usual, if you cannot make it for the whole day, you're very welcome to join us just for the morning, or just for the afternoon - even if it's only for an hour or two! If you come for breakfast and/or lunch, please email us by Thursday May 26th to email@example.com, so we may know how much food to get. And let us know what tools you will be bringing!
At last, let me share with you another amazing quote of St. Thomas Aquinas:
Without work, it is impossible to have fun!
A heartfelt thanks for your faithful friendship and help. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
