Saturday is "Ora et Labora — Day of Prayer and Work"
Thank you to everyone who has already helped so much in preparation for our day of Work and Prayer on Saturday, October 22nd. I also want to thank in advance those who will work and pray for the Parish. To all those who cannot make it, I know that you will be with us in spirit. I ask that you offer up a short prayer for the day.
Men will be split up into teams, each team working on different projects. We will try to assign everyone based on what sort of work they would like to do, such as painting; powerwashing; chopping wood; smashing an old and broken organ into splinters with hammers (Yes, that's happening tomorrow).
In addition to all the projects for the day, there are two other "teams" that men can join:
1) A team of 3-4 "runners" who will make any last-minute Home Depot runs.
2) A team of 3-4 cooks, who will keep the water stations full and BBQ lunch.
6:30 - Coffee and snacks available in the Cafeteria
7:00 - Time for personal prayer
7:45 - Morning prayer in the Church
8:00 - Breakfast
8:45 - Work begins
12:45 - Work concludes/clean-up
1:00 - Lunch
Things to bring
We are asking everyone to bring these items:
- Work gloves
- Safety goggles
- Refillable water bottle
Please bring these, if you have them:
We need about 10-12 of each of the following, so please consider bringing these if you have them:
- Shop Vacs
- Pressure washers
Whatever you bring, make sure your name is on it in some way (Permanent Marker, duct tape, whatever)
In addition to these items, if men want to bring their favorite BBQ sauce for lunch, it will be gratefully accepted!
