Shanty Town 2013
Homelessness... What can we learn about it's causes, effects, repercussions? How are we to respond?
Youth from 3 Churches and Youth Ministers from 6 Churches in the Lakes Vicariate joined together for the experience on October 18 and 19. We talked about stereotypes. We looked at Justice and Charity issues. Brother Ed shared some of his experiences at the soup kitchen with us. We played a game involving living on a minimum wage and we slept outside in boxes.
Thank you to St. William's in Walled Lake for hosting!
