CAMDEN, N.J. – The volunteers from the Franciscan Volunteer Ministry were welcomed to their place of service at St. Anthony of Padua Church on August 19 here.

John Coughlin orchestrated the ceremony, which included a liturgy of the word, a candle lighting, and the blessing as seen in the picture.

Following, a potluck dinner was held in the church basement. The FVMs are on retreat this week, and return to their sites on Thursday.
