Sister Luke shares this update from the volunteer program:

This week, four volunteers—Florence Schwalm, Rob Schwalm, Curtis Winslow, and Garrett Strzok – from St. John’s Parish in Hollywood, Maryland, will collaborate with Bardstown area volunteers. Their projects include constructing a deck with a ramp for a woman in Willisburg, Kentucky, and providing assistance to individuals impacted by last week’s tornadoes. The volunteers from Maryland are residing at the St. Joseph Volunteer House on the Nazareth Motherhouse campus during their Lay Mission Volunteer experience.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth Volunteer Program offers lay individuals the opportunity to engage in service alongside the Sisters, focusing on supporting the marginalized, oppressed, and economically disadvantaged. The program operates across various regions, addressing diverse needs through projects such as disaster relief, home building, and community support. It encourages cross-cultural partnerships, aiming to bring about significant change in both the volunteers and the communities they assist. nazareth.org/volunteer
