Camden is making progress...

Just an article from the Philadelphia Inquirer about a project our FVMs have taken interest in.

Back from Georgia

Just got back from a four-day trip to Athens, Georgia. We visited the University of Georgia and had a fantastic time!

On Thursday evening, Eddie (FVM Wilmington), Rory (FVM Philadelphia), and I spoke with 22 students at an event called Thursday Night Theology. We sat in the living room of the friary and discussed FVM and volunteering. We had a great response from the students. The event began at 8 and was supposed to end at 9, but we ended up talking until almost 10, with many students hanging around after for more. It was a great turnout, and a fun event.

Over the next few days we spoke at a confirmation retreat and four Masses. We probably spoke to around 800 students over the Mass schedule and also were able to talk to a group on a confirmation retreat. Each one of these times were very positive and generated great interest.

We also survived two tornado warnings and a power outage our last night in town. Life is always interesting in FVM!
