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.
