We were asked to take up the gifts at the 6pm youth mass on Sunday. All eight of us were able to participate and brought up toys and books for the children in Haiti as well as the bread and wine. After the mass, we had dinner with the youth choir. The parishioners at Our Lady Queen of Peace were so welcoming to us. We had great conversations and loved hearing about the genuine community that they have there. People come from all over the area to this church because of its unique presence. I'm so thankful that we had this experience.
