Fruit of the Vine Ultreya
The only regular meeting for Fruit of the Vine Ultreya in March was held. It was attended by six people. The meeting opened with the song "Prayer of St. Francis" in honor of the new pope, Francis I. Maria Hens said a prayer and then, instead of grouping, everyone shared how God has been working in his or her life and the individual directions in which He is taking each person.
Hens then shared business news, including the upcoming CCM weekend from April 4 to 7. "Holy Hour" and "Going to the Fence" will be today, April 6. There was also a discussion about what the next topic will be at Leader School in Buffalo.
The next meeting will be April 11, and is the night of the Mass with the Bishop. The group will meet at 6:15 p.m. at St. Joe's and carpool to Our Mother of Good Counsel in Blasdell, where the service will start at 7:30 p.m. If anyone would like to bring a dish to pass for the social hour after Mass, it would be welcome.
