This week everything is about putting the finishing touches on preparations for our upcoming Ursuline Service Trip to New Orleans. We’ve been collecting supplies for arts and crafts activities, books for story time, and donations that we’ll use to buy art suppliesdrinks and snacks for the children. Sr. Elisa and I will load the car and make the 10-hour trip from St. Louis to New Orleans this Friday. The volunteers—who come from Illinois, Missouri and New York—arrive on Sunday.

Stay tuned for updates and highlights from our week together, meet the Ursuline volunteers, and witness the power of serviam in the world!
