Bainbridge--When many people imagine a place of worship, soaring ceilings, tall spires, complex domes and stained glass windows are some of the images that come to mind—not an old, wood-paneled building with five rooms, formerly occupied by migrant farmers. 

 

But for the 80 or so Hispanic Catholics who gather here once, sometimes twice, weekly to worship and study the Bible, this recently renovated house, located near Fowlstown, Georgia is the cornerstone of their faith community and the main reason why so many locals have been able to receive the sacraments.

As part of the English Lenten Day of Reflection at Saint Joseph Church, Bainbridge, March 4, parishioners put the names of those in need of prayer in a basket on the altar and prayed for them. On March 25, the parish’s Hispanic community participated in their own Lenten retreat. Photograph provided by Father Raul Vasquez, ST, of Saint Joseph Church.
