The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

we almost finished. almost. the big gap is the last bit left to do, but the group from marymount has done an excellent job. loading 5 truckloads of sand. hefting 1000 gallons of water. cutting 200 boards. all by hand. the people of san andres are very excited to celebrate the first ever Mass inside (well, at least in san andres)...
