This is just a quick note; I’ll write more later. Last night a hail storm caused major damage at the Holy Rosary shrine and church near Reward. As a result, the pilgrimage this weekend has been cancelled.
The place is a real mess… windows are all smashed on the West side, trees are stripped, statues are wrecked (amazingly, except for the one standing out in the open in the grotto!).

If you would like any of the high-res versions of these photos sent to you, please send me a email. The photos each have a number just above the photo (eg. 100_0635), so if you send which number(s) you’d like, I can quickly send the larger version from my camera out to you.
