Any time the Joes get together to meet or work- we specifically include a time of spiritual reflection and discussion.
Joe Altenhoff has this to say about the spiritual reflection at St. James on our work days here:
Here are some photo updates from the second day and painting portion of the project-
St. James Church in Rockford was in need of some updating to the paster walls in some areas of the rectory and guest areas. The Joes had fun making a mess removing areas where the plaster was cracked and we will be painting as soon as the plaster is patched in a few weeks. We also made time for spiritual reflection during our meal and shared some of the things we are learning in Lent.
The guys admiring their work
Large area over stairs had a good amount of cracked plaster to be removed
Can't be afraid of heights if you want to be a Joe
Dale is hard at work
These guys covered this whole hallway! A lot accomplished in a day
Don't let the smile fool you- this guy is all business
Final wall- 1 hour of work / 10 guys? 6 minutes of work
Community is the best part about working with the Joes
