M and I visited St. Joseph’s Park two weekends ago. It’s something we’ve been talking about doing for a while now, but we seem to fill our days so quickly on the weekends with house projects, gatherings and who knows what. Two weekends ago was all about un-filling our weekend. We didn’t make plans. We said, what do you want to do and did. It was like a vacation.
St. Joseph’s Park is unique. A fire in the 1970s left only the church’s facade and bell tower standing. It’s a beautiful sanctuary in the middle of a not-so-beautiful neighborhood.
