Here's the view of St. Charles Center from Doug & Sarah Franck's dairy farm in Carthagena, Ohio. Tomorrow at 7 p.m., Doug & Sarah & their family will host the Archdiocese of Cincinnati's Rural-Urban Mass with Bishop Joseph Binzer presiding. All are welcome--bring lawn chairs and a small container for holy water. The farm is at 5750 Carthagena Rd St. Henry, Ohio. Thanks to Doug & Sarah, who are Companion inquirers, for hosting this event! (Photo by Tessa Kremer/Portrait Identity.)
