A Belated Thanks

January 29th, 2014

The Green House sends kisses to everyone who shared their time, talents and treasures with us in 2013. With your help were are able to host about 70 of our young people at the Vountown Peace Trust in early December for our annual Christmas party. We had a hike in the forest, games, pizza and, of course, a visit from Santa. In this picture you can see that Santa’s reindeer were in the shop and so he came with a couple of kissing alpacas he picked up at the rental shop a.k.a. Lavender Hill Farm http://www.lavenderalpacas.com/

Please come by for a visit some time. We celebrate Mass on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30 PM, we have kids in after school on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for snacks, games and homework help, and we gather every Saturday morning from 10-1 for arts, sports, fellowship and a sit down lunch.
