Faith Shines Through

Faith shines through…

Paris­hon­ers of St. Bar­bara Catholic Church in Cloverdale showed up Sun­day morn­ing with fold­ing chairs and a bor­rowed instru­ment for an emo­tional first Mass fol­low­ing the tor­nado that destroyed much of the vil­lage of Cloverdale on Novem­ber 17th, includ­ing their church.

The storm left sev­eral homes in Cloverdale dam­aged or destroyed, com­pletely lev­eled the church and severely dam­aged its rec­tory.

Church lead­ers say it’s not the dis­as­ter that defines the church but how the church moves for­ward from it.

As for what lies ahead for the church, that’s still unknown. Paris­hon­ers mean­while, vow to rebuild and move forward.
