Youth Lending 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 took the time this year to minister to others during the season when most of their peers were enjoying the usual summer vacation activities.  These programs, sponsored by local parishes of St. Joseph (Lake Orion), St. Iranaeus (Rochester Hills) and St. Maryís of the Hills (Rochesters Hill) included a balance between work, spiritual renewal and recreation.  During the day, the teenagers assisted several families in the area with needed projects like yard work, house cleaning and maintenance.  At night the groups returned to the Retreat House for prayer, meals and relaxation.  The generosity of these young people and their adult leaders had 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.
