Last installment of the Lenten Series at Hofstra: Lust and Chastity. And of course, Mass on campus is always my favorite.

The Mass of Our Lord’s Supper. My friend Sean and I were able to have our feet washed at a local Parish as we prepared for our Mission in Eastern Kentucky. The water was cold, but it was a grace-filled experience.

We also had a little concert with Mitch Barrett, a local folk artist.

Another day of hard work. BUT we had mac and cheese for dinner, and learned a little bit more about CAP and Appalachia at an information session.

Friday April 10, 2015

Finished up our project, met our participant, and spent some quality time with some wonderful ice cream (and a Cat).

We left beautiful Appalachia for Morgantown, WV where we relaxed and ate burritos. We also got lost and ended up stumbling upon WVU’s Catholic Chapel and Newman Center. It was a good detour.
