Today was another fun filled, busy day! We got up and went to a Baptist church this morning and for most of us it was the first time. It was a different experience but we had a lot of fun! Dr. Carpenter was there and he knows the preacher and his family from Alabama. Everyone there was so nice and welcoming, we all had a really great time!
After church, we went to Portillo's which was AMAZING!!!! Some of the group had not been to Portillo's and then there were those of us from the Chicago land area who have been and have missed the food. It was so good and many of us were ready for a nap when we got back. And that's exactly what we did while Dr. Blesz and a few of the girls made dinner.
Fr. Chuck from St. Pius V came and said a Catholic mass for us and then we all had dinner together. Dr. Blesz made his famous meatballs and spaghetti and it was delicious! After dinner, Fr. Chuck told us about the history of the neighborhood which was very interesting. We spent the rest of the night relaxing and enjoying each others company.
Tomorrow we are going to St. Pius V school and helping out at the soup kitchen!
