Do Whatever He Tells You

On Saturday, July 13, six members of our Marianist high School, Chaminade High School(Mineola), Daniel Cantanno, Flynn Gray, Davis Luchner, Kevin Malloy, Vincent Randazzo, and Douglas Stern, traveled with Bro. Peter Sennert and Bro. Patrick Sarsfield to Nazareth Farm in Salem, West Virginia  or a week-long service retreat. Nazareth Farm is a lay-run Catholic apostolate that is committed to doing home repairs for the people of Appalachia with the aid of volunteer groups from across the country.

In addition to working on roofing, painting, siding, and other construction projects, volunteers at Naz Farm spend time with the people of Appalachia, giving them an understanding of the region’s history, culture, and struggles. People leave at the end of the week with a greater insight into the different causes and faces of poverty in America.
