A View from the Porch (April 29, 2015)

Having the opportunity to spend some great time with my nephews is always rewarding because I learn so much stuff from them. It’s obvious to figure out why the great son of God, Jesus, pointed out the deep spiritual relationship between children, the adults and the kingdom of his father.

We all love kids, they are so adorable. Why can’t we feel the same for the big ones? I mean, no exceptions! It looks like in termS of opportunity to promise something good in life, as we age, we have less and less to offer. The world is still a very difficult place.

The best of us, regardless of age, find a way to serve and bring relief to the less fortunate. We meet and learn from those servants of goodwill in any field. They are everywhere! They think something can be done so they try and keep trying. Yes, they are our precious volunteers giving their treasure, time, skills and wisdom to brighten our dark day. We thank all of them from the bottom of our heart.
Enjoy our view from the porch!
Love, Reynold
Thanks for donations for refrigerators!
We have 4 refrigerators at St. Agnes’ House.  Three of them are working, but are about 20 years old.  Word has gone out and we recently received $800 earmarked for near refrigerators.  Another $700 would allow us to replace all three 20+ year old refrigerators.  Let us know if you’d like to help!
Volunteer for data input and cleanup needed!

The Diocese has purchased a donor management system, which allows us to keep better track of your donations and your contact information.  The system is up and running, but as with anything new, needs some further clean-up work.  If you’re skilled at his, please call Rebecca at 606-528-1659.

Provide a room for 30 nights of lodging! $810 for a single and $1,200 for a large room!
Sponsor a room for a whole month, providing 30 nights of lodging.  We’ll let everyone know you’ve given this wonderful gift…you’ve lessened their trauma.  You can donate by check to St. Agnes’ House, Diocese of Lexington, PO Box 610, Lexington, KY 40588 or online at http://www.diolex.org.
