Teens from Illinois visited Kentucky this week to help residents in Beattyville. Ellen Sprigg, assistant director of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth Lay Mission Volunteer Program, is accompanying the youth group from Old Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church in Chicago. The group arrived July 31 and spent the week with Ms. Dora at Kentucky Cornerstone Ministry in Beattyville.

While there, the teens painted, power washed and spruced up a few homes for residents in Beattyville.
