Brothers of the Florida chapter spent a day giving back to the community of Key West during our service trip to Key West. St. Paul's Episcopal Church lies in the heart of Duval Street, the main street of Key West. Although the church has undergone several renovations, it has been in the same spot since 1831. This church is both a landmark and a sanctuary for the natives of Key West. One of the days during the trip was dedicated to giving back to the community of Key West. My brothers and I spent a day beautifying this historic landmark. I was involved with painting the porch of the antebellum house once used to house generations of priests, but is now used as a community gathering for various events, such as book clubs and children’s choir. I also assisted my fellow brothers in wiping down the pews of the open-air church. Other brothers focused on cleaning up the grounds by raking and cutting down old palm leaves. Needless to say, it felt great giving back to this historic community, and even more to such a beautiful and sacred church.
