Well, today we had lots of help at the friary. Fra Joseph directed a group of friars, men and boys in the construction of the Boot Camp / Crucible for the Encampment. I think Doug Barry will be pleased. Father Bonaventure spent the day at Billy’s doing more prefabrication of the various stations for the Crucible. Thanks to all the guys for help.
Next Saturday we will have another work day. We can really still use the help of fathers and sons. The wooden structures will be installed then, and more clearing will have to be done on the trails. Mass will be at 7:00, followed by breakfast. Work begins around 9:00.
Here is a photo record of today:
The main trail looking up toward the way back to the friary. We still need to clear allot of rocks and stumps.
Fra Xavier routering a round corner on one of the platforms. Safety first.
Our well organized and neatly kept work area. Fra John Luis in the foreground, Fra Xavier in the background.
Fra Joseph and Gabe digging a trench to be filled with pea stone for another one of the stations. Notice that Gabe is not talking. Rare photo.
From left to right: Thom (meditating), Adam (hiding), Bryce (Skeet), and Lucas (The Worm Counter). Of course, all of them working hard.
Adam, no longer able to hide.
