Our first Mass in late July 2018 held 400 people in a warehouse(Prodisee Pantry). Now we are 260 households with 100 youth coming for catechism every Sunday between our two Masses. The men meet weekly to pray and study. We women still join other groups from our former parishes for study and prayer. We still borrow the 900-square-meter warehouse every Sunday: setting up chairs, altar, tabernacle, candle, classroom-tables coffee-station pastries-and-juice table. After 5 hours we pack everything away so the warehouse owners can conduct business on Monday. By the time we build our own church, we will be accomplished co-workers and the first financial donors are those who schlep supplies every week! << that's an inside joke."
