‘Nacho’ ordinary mission trip for Roanoke group
ROANOKE — It’s “nacho” orinary mission trip that a group of 10 teenagers and adults from St. Joseph’s Parish here are on this week. The group, headed by Cathy Bilow, left Satruday for a Catholic HEART Workcamp mission trip to Piedras Negras, Mexico, which boasts of being the birthplace of the nacho.
But tourism and Mexican cuisine are not the reasons Bilow and her companions are going to the community on the Texas-Mexico border. During the weeklong mission they will stay and work at Casa de Nazareth, a girls’ orphanage affiliated with the Catholic Church. There will also be time for fun, worship and prayer with about 80 other teens and adults from across the U.S. who will be there through Catholic HEART Workcamp.
