Summer Teen Service Week involves 50 youth and 20+ adult volunteers to put faith in action and give back to the community. Each day our teens focused on the Daily Examen and ask God to show them specific ways He is present to them. Through the people they serve, fellow youth and their own inner movement towards God, our teens are able to grow their relationship with Christ!
Our Lemon Aid Stand showed how many gallons of water refugees often have to carry for miles…We shared how the Jesuit Refugee Service helps those displaced from their homelands due to war and famine.
Wednesday, our youth served the residents lunch at McCreesh Place
Joyful activities with city youth!
Seeing God in all things
