Our porters volunteer their time and energy to help the friars in many ways; they take turns answering the phone, attending to people coming to the friary for different needs, helping open and close the chapel and also lending a hand in friary special occasions.
To show our appreciation, the friars host them at a local restaurant every year around Christmas time. Besides a nice meal, games are played for prizes and gifts are given, besides a lot of other fun. God bless our porters!

One of the fun games that livened the dinner was to make buildings or structures with little marshmallows and tooth picks!
