Our 2018 Ursuline Summer Service has begun well, with open hearts, laughter, and a desire to be stretched by new experiences.  All arrivals from New York and New Orleans were on time today, and it took no time at all for the group to begin bonding.  We are blessed with such lovely volunteers.

There was time to unpack and get acquainted, then we visited the very beautiful San Jose Mission, which helped us touch into the rich history of South Texas.

Our evening meal was followed by orientation to the week. We are all women steeped in the Ursuline spirit  and Serviam, and what that means to us flowed freely in our sharing. We desire to bring Angela’s kind heart, listening ear, courage, vision and peace-making to all we meet. We want the persons at Haven for Hope to feel they truly are our brothers and sisters.  We know we will be changed by this week, and we are  ready with very eager hearts!
