Are You Called to Serve This Summer?

In John 13, Jesus does something extraordinary. He, the Master and Teacher, washes the feet of his followers. They are overwhelmed at the experience and Jesus’ challenge to them to go and do the same.

Now, it’s your turn. There are people in our diocese in need. You are invited to serve as Jesus did and to make a difference in the lives of those who live down the road, around the corner, and next door. You are invited to wash feet.

It is an experience that can change you, move you, inspire you, and lead you to challenge others to go and do the same.

Chaperones Are Still Needed

Background cleared chaperones are needed for this week to be a success. Come, lead, guide, and serve alongside the young people of our diocese. Along with assisting with the evening programing, chaperones will work alongside the youth at the designated work sites during the day. No construction, carpentry or landscaping experience is required. This is sure to be a great spiritually filled week for all involved. If you are interested in assisting us this week please contact CYM before May 15, 2017 at catholicyouth@cdow.org or call 302-658-3800.
