Spiritan Campus Ministry Making a Difference
Students spent the week gutting homes, which means taking everything out of the house until there are only the studs left. Students gutted four houses during the week, which in return helps four families take one step further to rebuilding their homes and their lives.
"This trip has touched me in ways that words cannot describe. I do however, make sure to let those who ask about the trip know that we worked on HOMES not HOUSES. The stories of struggle, suffering, perseverance and hope that the people of New Orleans shared with us were both moving and deeply inspiring. Despite the destruction that is unfortunately still visible in neighborhoods, the city is very much alive. The city of New Orleans is beautiful and filled with such vibrant culture. I now know that Southern hospitality is a real thing and a wonderful gift!"
