A Week at Magnificat Farm
June 30, 2022
The first of the four summer Province Mission trips, a week at Magnificat Farm in Kentucky, ended on Wednesday, June 29th. Our second Mission Trip to Brownsville finishes on Sunday (7/3, and our third to El Paso begins today (7/1). The fourth Mission Trip will be in the Lawrence area and will begin on July 17th. We are grateful to all of the participants on these trips who are learning the realities of many of our Brothers and Sisters living on the margins on society. Likewise, we are grateful to all those who have helped coordinate and plan these trips.
Brothers Dave Cooney, Brian Poulin, and Michael Telewah were among the group and were hosted by the Van Cleef family: Ellen, Joshua, and Baby Joy. While the work included constructing a playhouse for poor children being raised by their grandparents and helping out at Magnifcat Farm, the greatest experience was the community they shared in such beautiful surroundings.
