Informational Meeting March 2 at 6:30 pm
The next mission outreach to Elias Piña, Dominican Republic, will be November 7–15, 2020. The primary goal of each mission outreach trip is to encounter members of the community we visit. We will also be making pews for one of the churches Fr. Michael Seis uses for his pastoral duties. Many of the pews in this church are unusable due to damage from termites, and need to be replaced. We will be using specially treated lumber that resists destruction by termites, and it is available in Elias Piña. For this mission, we will need several skilled carpenters. We will also need and welcome team members to be carpenters’ helpers, and to help with cleaning and painting as needed. An initial informational meeting is scheduled for March 2, 2020 at 6:30 pm in one of the classrooms at St. Raphael. All are welcome to attend to learn more about this discipleship opportunity to serve those in need.
