I received a thank you note from Our Lady of La Vang Catholic Church, our new neighbors in the former Bethany Hills Baptist Church next to us on Leesville Road. Their pastor offers his thanks for our gift of a San Damiano cross (the Franciscan cross) and a financial donation to their community. He writes: “We at Our Lady of La Vang would like to thank you and St. Francis of Assisi Parish for a warm welcome at mass on September 24. It fills our hearts with joy and honor to have a chance to personally thank everyone at your parish for their prayers, friendship, and the beautiful San Damiano cross. May the Lord, through the intercession of Our Lady of La Vang, continue to bless you always!”
Blessings on your week!
