Joining St. Francis parishioners on mission trip
About a dozen folks from around the Des Moines metro area are on a mission trip to South Africa to help the poorest of the poor. They're traveling to Blessman Ministries, about three hours north of Johannesburg, to help the needy through an outreach founded by Dr. Jim Blessman, formerly of Des Moines. Our communication director, Anne Marie Cox, is joining them and she's set up a blog to provide a glimpse into this remarkable opportunity. Follow their journey by clicking here.
