Blessed Carport {A Catholic Thing}

Zachary, Peter and Joseph process to the carport following daily Mass
The finishing touch on Zachary's Eagle project carport came from above in the form of a blessing with a formal procession following daily Mass.  The community which has supported his efforts, with financial, spiritual and material assistance joined in the joyful occasion.  

Jesus leads the way, in Joseph's care
Our new priest, Father Joseph Altenhofen, presided for the blessing of the carport, and the rite of blessing beautifully recalled Christ's own labor on earth as a carpenter and His giving dignity to workers by His own example as one who labored.  The final touch came in the form of holy {blessed} water, sprinkled liberally throughout the new structure, a tangible claiming for good and dispelling of evil.
Father Joseph gives the blessing, calling upon the Lord
