ACTIVITIES: Teams will work together each day at a house in the city and within an outreach organization. Home repairs depend on the condition of the house and on what we can accomplish in one week. Such projects could include putting up drywall, painting, limited construction (fix a sagging floor, or install new steps) and other general repairs.
This Mass with Bishop Cistone is part of the Fortnight for Freedom, which takes place each year from June 21 to July 4. This is a time of year when the liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political powers. These martyrs include St. Thomas More, St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the first martyrs of the Church of Rome. Following Mass a procession and brief ceremony will be held at the Saginaw County Veterans Memorial Plaza. All are welcome.
