On a cool and rainy Saturday, April 28th, St. Michael Parish in Findlay joined the Findlay Ministerial Association comprised of many other area volunteers to do yard work, painting, and modest house repairs to homes in the community. Instead of going afar on a Mission Trip, churches in the Findlay area gathered tools, the needed equipment and enthusiasm and began the days projects.
Eager to share Fellowship, pray, serve in Christian unity, and Minister to the needs of others and following a community welcome breakfast, teams of adults, teens and younger children scattered throughout the area to tackle their specific projects. Mary Lou joined with 4 other adults to wash windows and cupboards for seniors unable to do so for themselves.
By mid-afternoon many of the jobs were finished and new friends were made in the process.
