Community name

It was a tough fight between ‘Twelve / Seven Graces’, ‘Ashes to Ashes’, ‘Olive Tree’, ‘Come as you are (CAYA)’…Or to stick with Budding Community. In the end, majority voted and decided on Seven Graces.

“Seven” is to symbolize perfection as we strive on this earthly journey with God and each other. “Graces” is incorporated because it is beyond our own intellect, efforts and control. Hence we ultimately need His Grace to sustain us through it all.
