More About the Fr. Beiting Appalachian Mission:
In recent years, OLV parishioner Kaija Jeantet has organized several trips to Appalachia to assist the poor at this Mission. Last summer Kaija and Ellen Barber organized an Appalachian Vacation Bible School Mission and took several folks, and lots of supplies with them for the week. From Jan 15 for a year, OLV`s 21 year old Jim O`Brien will be going to this mission for a year of service. We`d like to share a family history of Fr. Beiting, with many details about this amazing priest who continues to serve the poor in Appalachia. As you read the attached link, you might skip down to the section specifically about him--Rev. Ralph Beiting. May you be inspired too. Link to biography of Fr. Ralph Beiting
