Okolona Update for Monday, Feb 25, 2019

Our group made our way south from Green Bay on Saturday morning. We hit rain and fog most of the way but thankfully no snow or ice. We rested for the evening in Mt Vernon, IL. Found a lovely church where we celebrated mass with a friendly parish. We even had a baptism. They were selling meatballs but we opted for Mexican and then a good nights rest.

Finished our trip on Sunday and met Sr Liz, Sr Nancy, Sr Jeanne and Sr Therese, a guest volunteer from Australia, at the Excel Learning Center where we are lodged for the week. Great supper and conversation. Sr Nancy walked us through the “Honey Do” list. The guys then spent the rest of the evening “planning”. The women were organized within 15 minutes - in time to watch the Oscars.

We are so grateful for a safe trip, good companions, time to give back and to meet our friends, old and new, in Okolona.

Stay tuned and check out the pictures.
