My beautiful Valley Church tour took me further throughout the lower RGV this past week.

After spending time working on my dissertation research at school last Saturday, I attended Vigil Mass at the nearby parish where we had my second Ph.D. Convocation.

The priest really struck a chord in me about how his Church lacked involvement in the Ministry, so I hope that he reached out to the Congregation members.

On Sunday, I swung by the grotto in Port Isabel, following my homecoming in South Padre Island.

My buddy also took me by another place of worship on the Island.

After work on Monday, I visited the Church where my nephew’s dad was the first altar boy.

Unfortunately, we lost a family friend that night, and I continued to pray for the repose of her soul on Tuesday.

I’ve also taken my nephew and stepdaughter to Vacation Bible School, so I like to believe that they’re learning valuable lessons about GOD and His Word there.
