Beckwith Camp and Retreat Center recently received a grant from the Holy Spirit Thrift Shop in the amount of $11,000. A check was presented to Eleanor Reeves, executive director, who reports that the grant will be used towards the cost of roof repairs.

The Thrift Shop is delighted to present these monies to Beckwith as we continue to partner with them in making this great facility welcoming and available to the people of the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast and beyond!
