A home for Rose

Posted by Spalding Hurst

February 19, 2019

During a beautiful week in Belize, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth completed their third volunteer home building project this year. Three members of the team, Rita Rodgers, Catherine Paulus, and Jack Reis had participated with the build the week prior and Rita and Catherine raised the funds to build this home.

It was an amazing week for this group to cross paths with Rose, the recipient of the new home. Rose is as sweet as her name suggests and she felt blessed to have started a new job and receive this new house all in the same week!

The other half of the team, Bill Sprigg, Hugh Arnold, and Rob Panicucci were excited to be a part of their first SCN volunteer immersion experience. By the end of the week, Rose and this amazing team’s lives were forever weaved together as each of their families grew a little bit bigger.
