Posted February 27, 2013

The Rev. Tar Drazdowski administered ashes to the children of the Episcopal school in El Pedregal on February 13, 2013.

The Rev. Tar Drazdowski, along with her husband, Jim, and Julia and Julius Ariail, were in the Dominican Republic from February 10-16, 2013, to attend a meeting of the board of the Dominican Development Group and to spend a few days exploring work options for the Christ Church mission team June 15-22, 2013, in El Pedregal. While they were in El Pedregal, Tar+ administered ashes to the children of the school and celebrated the Holy Eucharist at an Ash Wednesday service for the adults in the village. She and Julia also held a meeting with some of the master knitters in the village to explore handwork projects. The group also visited several houses in various states of construction to evaluate potential building projects for the summer.

Some of the knitted items made since our June 2012 mission trip.
