NEWS AND EVENTS

Living Legacy Grove

Thank you to everyone who donated and those who came out to the tree blessing and helped plant the 65 trees in our new Living Legacy Grove on the corner of Halprin Drive and Winn. It was a beautiful Saturday morning and we had so many great volunteers from the school, parish, and Navy. It’s because of ALL OF YOU we were able to not only help beautify the City of Norfolk with these native trees, but also help provide environmental benefits as well!

Thank you to our Pastor, Fr. Prince for the blessing of the trees!
