Help the Madonna Renewal Center to Rebuild Their Chapel

A group of Catholic Men called St Joseph & Sons are coming together to help the Sisters at the Madonna Renewal Center. They will be remodeling the chapel on the first floor. They are calling for other Catholic Men to come and help them and the Sisters to make their dream of helping others come true.  

As Catholic Men, we are called to help those in need, to honor the dignity of women, and lead others to Christ. Join them in this essential role of spiritual leadership as Catholic Men. They will be working at the Madonna Renewal Center every Saturday from 8:00am to 1:00pm, with April 8 as their target date for completion.
