Grateful and Proud

by Jerry A. Racioppi

Early on in my time as rector at Holy Spirit Verona I was told about a Mission Trip that Holy Spirit Verona sponsored to Grace House on the Mountain in St. Paul, VA.  Although an Episcopal Church sponsored site, I was not familiar with it.  Several of the Holy Spirit parishioners raved about their experience at Grace House.  My second summer (2016) at Holy Spirit, we considered doing a Mission Trip, but we felt we did not have the momentum to have a decent attendance.  

Being A Beloved Community of Active Citizens

Holy Spirit Verona Mission Trip 2018

In July 2017, I joined eleven Verona residents on a Mission Trip to Grace House on the Mountain in St. Paul, VA.  This Episcopal Church sponsored organization hosts groups of caring individuals weeks at a time to complete construction projects in the surrounding towns and neighborhoods.  Grace House is owned and operated by the Diocese of SW Virginia, but is open to any group of active citizens wanting to make a difference.
