Και κλήρονομον δείξον με, ζωής της αιωνίου

« on: October 16, 2013, 07:48:51 PM »

A group of Greek Orthodox Church youth from Rochester, Minnesota traveled to Mexico to build a house for a man in need.

From the article:
The man's son has tuberculosis, and could not live with him because of the dampness and mold. Now they can live together in this home.

Charlie Rose: If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

Fran Lebowitz: Everything. There is not one thing with which I am satisfied.

This sounds like a part of Project Mexico


My parish sent a team earlier in the summer, and found it a fantastic experience (from their after trip coffee hour sharing!)

I sort of want to go next year, since someone goes every year.

Here's hoping my defense at the dread judgement seat of Christ doesn't turn out to be 'well I argued about what day it was.....a lot'

Very cool. It's always nice to see that a youth group is not getting too inwardly focused.

Note Papist's influence from the tyrannical monarchism of traditional papism .
