The Colorado Vincentian Volunteers are a group of young adults who do full-time service in Denver for a year or more.
For spring break, I (along with a campus minister, a GA and nine other students) will be spending a week with them, doing various types of service work and exploring the mission of good old St. V. de P.
I am super excited about this opportunity because the Boyfriend and I would love to take advantage of a service year like the CVV does after he graduates. We’ll get a chance to experience many different service sites. My main one will be a school.
I’m also very excited to sit down with the owners of SAME Cafe, a restaurant that serves a different menu of organic/local food each day. Everyone is encouraged to enjoy a meal, and you can choose to make a donation or to volunteer in exchange for the food. Pretty cool idea, right?
We are staying in a church basement, so I will be out of touch for the next week. I may or may not get some posts scheduled ahead of time. Have a great spring break readers!
