St. Mary's Nutrition Center Garden Blessing
St. Mary’s Nutrition Center plants sunflowers
and the garden is blessed by local clergy and the prayers of all.
On June 13th, community members and clergy came together to pray and to plant seeds of growth in the Nutrition Center's garden on Bates St.
Wooden stakes with wishes for “healthy plants” and “a community space for all” were symbolically planted in addition to planting of sunflower seeds.
Community members plant sunflower seeds to help remediate lead in the soil.
Fr. Peter joins in the work.
A job well-done!
