Our last day at Tierra Nueva 11 - so difficult to say good-bye.
the ten delegates participated in the 6:30 am Mass as homilist, Eucharistic Ministers and choir members. It was noted that within the universality of our church knowing spanish was not necessary; we moved within the rythmn of Litrgy.
many tears were shed as we said good bye to our families and friends in Christ, children to elderly shared in the sadness; but with the confidence that we will be holding one another in our hearts.
the afternoon was filled with a powerful retreat shared with the 18 members of the Sister Parish committee, followed by our final meal together.
we left Tierra Nueva 11 with hearts full of love and hope for a changed world
