A “shocking” experience

By Daris Delph When I would tell people I went to Haiti, naturally they would ask “how was it?!” in the same way people ask “how are you?” and the answer is always “good, how are you?” But this is not a genuine answer but a formality we entertain, rather than a truthful reply to the question. I felt the pressure to reply the same way when I was asked about Haiti, I would say […]

Summer reflections

Archdiocese of Baltimore trip By Megan O’Neill Nothing can ever truly prepare you for trips like this and I cannot even begin to explain the range of emotions I felt this week, but happiness always came out on top. The happiness that surrounds Hatians is contagious and reflects that having less allows us to focus on what actually matters and be at peace.

Day 6: Heading Home

Day 5: Spirit/Mission

By: Andrew On the last day of camp I reflected upon being in the moment with the kids today. I felt sadness as we said goodbye to them today.

I appreciate what they taught me as to making the best of situations and always having joy every […]

Day 4: Zeal/ Wisdom

By: Mac Today was so wonderful. It was the first day where the kids really knew us and our names. The girls would all hug me when they were assigned to my group and the guys would all high five or knuckle touch me. These kids love us so much and I love them back. I do not want to leave these kids tomorrow. I want to take them all with me.
