Crew 5 - Return trip part 1
We began our day very early this morning with breakfast
at the center before hitting the road at 8:00 am.
Many of the teens spent the ride from Jonesville, VA
to Carlisle, PA catching up on sleep,
summer reading and/or journaling.
We also spent some time as a crew reflecting on the week.
We hope that our crew took the time to check
in with their parents along the way as well.
We have settled in at our host, St. Patrick's Parish,
for the evening and have had dinner.
We are now out with the entire group bowling and
then we plan to stop for ice cream before heading
back to the church for our final prayer gathering
as a group. Tonight each individual will be sharing
his/her own personal reflection on their experience
this week with the group. We are eager to hear what
everyone has to say.
We are all eager to get home to see our families and
share with you our thoughts about the past week
and the things that we have experienced.
Tomorrow we plan to be on the road by 8:00 am once again.
We anticipate arriving back at Holy Cross at
approximately 4:00 pm so please plan on arriving
at the church by then.
Mass will be celebrated at 4:30 pm
and it is our expectation that all of the
teens will attend Mass with their parents.
It is a wonderful way for us to close out our journey.
We will have your children check in with you along
the way tomorrow so that you will have a more precise
idea of our exact arrival time.
Until then God Bless and continue to keep us in your prayers.
