According to Pope Francis Message for Lent 2017:

~The other person is a gift, Pope Francis invites us to open the doors of our heart to others because each person is a gift, whether it be our neighbor or an anonymous pauper. Lent is a favorable season for opening the doors to all those in need and recognizing in them the face of Christ.(
In that spirit, Students and staff traveled to Columbia South Carolina serving with the Saint Bernard Project to rebuild disaster stricken areas. They are working on a house to redo the drywall for a family in need for a spring mission trip.  Blessings to all those involved.
