Last week, I was in Wilmington, Delaware for workshops with the sophomores at Ursuline Academy. What a lovely group of young women! We talked about discernment, God’s gifts, and the call from Jesus to use what we’ve been given to make a difference in this world. Serviam– “I will serve”–is not, we agreed, only for high school. It’s for all our lives.
In that spirit, for those of you no longer in high school, here’s a great opportunity to serve. We, Ursuline Sisters, offer a week of service in McAllen, Texas, June 23-29, 2019 for women ages 18-30. We will work with immigrant families at The Humanitarian Respite Center of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley. We’ll prepare and serve food, organize clothing and showers, help with transportation, and learn a lot about the struggles of immigrant people in the process. Housing will be at the San Juan Basilica Hotel.
For more information or an application form, contact me, Sr. Elisa Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org). It promises to be a great week of service, community and fun in the spirit of Serviam!
