Wacky and Busy Weekend!

Hey there folks,

This past weekend was a wild and crazy one. Saturday, to kick it all off, an intergenerational group got together to volunteer their time for the Fall Home Works Blitz. Brandon Templeton headed up the project. The installed new doors inside, installed new railings on the back stoop, cleaned the yard, and did a whole lot more.

At about lunch time, we had another group head down to Gravatt for 24 (Sr High Fall Retreat). The theme was the Wizard of Awes. Very cool stuff. The weekend was filled with discussions, sharing, singing, games, free time, prayer, the Eucharist, and a whole lot more. It was a great weekend learning how God is with you in the tornadoes and the Emerald Cities of life. We also explored how to respond to God's blessings. Great stuff.

Before the weekend kicked off, I went to the Hammond vs Heathwood B Team football game. We had a few youth on Hammond's team: Samuel Miller (#62), Lang Phillips (#15), and Wells Mealing (#77). They played hard, but unfortunately did not come out on top. It was great to see them in action!
