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.
