Project Life Returns!

Next week, 117 teens from around the Archdiocese and their adult leaders and chaperones will participate in the Office of Youth Ministry’s annual week-long service retreat. Project Life gathers teens from various backgrounds to be transformed by the Gospel call to love one another through service to those in need. Throughout the course of the week, teens (aka "Feet Washers") come to know and recognize Jesus Christ in themselves and in the people they serve.

The teens and their leaders will be based out of Villa Duchesne High School and will volunteer at 31 different service sites in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, and in Illinois.  These include Southside Senior Ministries, Cardinal Ritter Senior Services, Karen House, Our Lady’s Inn, several parish vacation Bible Schools, and LifeBridge, a camp for children with disabilities.

Please keep the teens and the many people they will be serving in your prayers. Through spiritual programming, great music, hard work, and good times Project Life has become an awesome event that allows Christ to speak and work through them in ways they would never have imagined!
