A big thank you to Aaron Denn, John Allen, and Bob Fuerst (did I miss anyone?) for coming out early Monday afternoon and helping the Guardians in the Community (part of the St. Raphael School) care for the Beddingfield Family Cemetery at the south end of our St Raphael campus. The children did a fantastic job, especially considering that we were limited and could only use toothbrushes on the headstones. We washed the fence and tombstones, raked, and helped the families plant pansies around the area. We also learned a bit about All Soul’s Day, praying for the dead, and some history of the family that is buried there.
We will definitely consider doing this again next year, and will be sure to invite the Guardians out again then.
God bless you all, have a safe and fun All Hallows Eve, and don’t forget to pray for your families this Friday (02-Nov)!
