Blessings to all in Eastertide Grace! I heard from Deacon Cecily that she & the ECM Mission students are back in USA again safe, sound, and truly blessed by their experience & service in Costa Rica! Here is the last word …

Dear Father Paul and the St. Thomas Community,

Hard to believe it’s our last day and it ended with an amazing view. We went to the Poas Volcano National Park, where we viewed the most acidic lake in a volcanic crater.

as well as a lagoon of collected rainwater. It was a physical challenge but the view was worth it.

We concluded our volcano adventure with a taste of the local strawberries and lunch.

I’m sending this email over our last dinner here. While we were eating, the power went out in a small part of San Jose. The restaurant carried on business as usual. I guess that’s what it means to live “pura vida”! Alex even called it “the full Costa Rica experience”. 🙂

We’re on our way to Newark, NJ and eventually DE. Thank you so much for helping us get here and we’ll see you soon!

Pura Vida!
