Youth Offering a Helping Hand

      For many summers now, St. Benedictís Subiaco Retreat House has been hosting groups of young people who are trying to make a difference in the lives of the poor and elderly.  We commend the youth who take the time to minister to others during the time when most of their peers are enjoying the usual summer vacation activities.  These programs, sponsored by local parishes include a balance between work, spiritual renewal and recreation.  During the day, the teenagers will assist several families in the area with needed projects like yard work, house cleaning and maintenance.  At night the groups will return to the Retreat House for prayer, meals and relaxation.  The generosity of these young people and their adult leaders will have a positive impact on the lives of those who are less fortunate.  And it will remind all those involved that the power of Christís love is still transforming this world.
