Youth Service & Justice Opportunities
S4J (Service for Justice)
S4J focuses on direct service in response to Pope Francis' call to each of us to accompany the poor. Parish teens meet every month (usually on the last Saturday) to prepare and distribute a meal outside the Shrine of the Sacred Heart in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood.
The group assembles in the rectory to prepare food and enjoy fellowship; serves outside the church and interacts with guests in a safe setting; and then cleans up.
The onsite time-commitment is 3:15-5pm. All food and supplies are provided. Volunteers are 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.
If you'd like to be added to the S4J Mailing List, 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.
