Last night was the groundbreaking for our new church. The bishop presided and blessed the land and the plants and all the people. Instead of plowing over the plants to build the road, Father Pat had each family dig up as many plants as they wanted. He asked that we transplant the plants and pray over them as they grow. The plants growth will be a reminder to pray for our parish as it grows as well. This was a great idea and the boys had a wonderful time finding and digging up their plants. Jake chose a cactus (which was a little difficult!) and Sam chose some pretty orange and yellow flowers. Will had fun just hanging out in the beautiful weather and watching his crazy brothers! The only problem was that we had some pretty heavy monsoon rains and we had to trek through really deep mud. But Jake and Sam thought that was pretty great too!
