+ Our missions committee has planned a mission opportunity for any of our parishioners who would like to lend a hand to our mission in Blacksburg, VA. This is a hands on, one day project for beautifying the parish church of St. Philip’s. The workday is planned for November 7 and everyone on the missions committee is excited and looking forward to making a concrete contribution to good work of Fr. Wade Miller and his parishioners! I think this will be great. We want to build a strong relationship with Fr. Miller and the parish as well as bless them with some labor. Our tentative schedule for the day is:
9:15/9:30: Arrive at St. Philips
Break for lunch
5:30: Wrap up work
Grab some pizza and head back home
