Youth Service & Justice Opportunities
S4J (Service for Justice)
S4J focuses on direct service opportunities in response to Pope Francis' call to each of us to accompany the poor. We meet on the last Saturday of every month to prepare and distribute food outside of the Shrine of the Sacred Heart church in downtown DC. Here is how it works:
The onsite time-commitment is from 3:15-5pm.
Volunteers will be responsible for their own transportation to and from Shrine of the Sacred Heart (3211 Sacred Heart Way, Washington, DC 20010). Carpooling may be an option.
We will assemble in the Sacred Heart Rectory kitchen to prepare the food and enjoy some fellowship; then serve in the park and interact with people who are homeless (in a safe setting); and then clean up and depart.
If you'd like to be added to the S4J Mailing List, please contact Tom Banchoff.
This is a day to learn about peace and others' lives and serve our wider community. 7th through 12th graders are invited to this morning of service and presence with children and teens at the Perry Center. On scheduled Saturdays (TBD--if coordinated by a parent/adult vol) we leave from Holy Trinity at 9:00 am and return by 12:30 pm.
Drivers and chaperones are always needed.
