What better day to paint our welcome angel than Ascension Thursday, when thoughts turn towards heavenly hopes and dwelling places? Mary Pisaniello, who, with husband Bruno, helped found St. Joseph’s Dwelling Place 22 years ago, applies a coat of white to a pine tree carving done by Catherine in their early years here.
“In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.” John 14:2-3
