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.

“When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him.” – Genesis 32:25
Will you wrestle with me? by Father Jerry (FJ) Racioppi
Probably not a question you would expect me to ask, but you are sure to know that I am not speaking about physical wrestling. My question really is: Will you let me walk with you as we wrestle with faith together?

Members of the Verona Clergy Council held a meeting on Wednesday, June 6 with Dr. Montaser Awad, President of the Verona Islamic Center and other members of this new Verona house of worship. These neighbors were formally welcomed and a wonderful dialogue ensued about how we might support one another. A formal letter of welcome was signed and presented by members of the Verona Clergy Council. Click here to review the letter.
