Furthering spirituality with service

Jenna Crowley, Spiritual Life Editor

To provide students with a weekend of unique experiences and service opportunities, the Cathedral Catholic High School Mission and Ministry office is hosting an immersion trip to Verbum Dei High School in Los Angeles, with the volunteer group leaving after school tomorrow and returning Sunday.

“We will be going up to LA and will spend the night at their school,” Dean of Mission and Ministry Mrs. Stacy Wells said. “They are in the Watts and Compton areas of LA, which is not that nice of a neighborhood, and the students there are all on scholarships.”

The trip’s service interactions include a field day with a local youth organization, community garden work, and serving at the Catholic Worker kitchen.

Meeting and spending time with students from Verbum Dei, CCHS students will have the opportunity to delve further into their spirituality.

“Mr. Grammy and I went on a [Verbum Dei] service trip with them last year, and the boys are amazing,” Mrs. Wells said.
