Sunday Friends: Sign Up For July 5th
Our Holy Spirit Social Ministries Committee is offering a new opportunity for service! Many of our teens have already served at Sunday Friends while preparing for their Confirmation. Now it will be a parish program.
The mission of Sunday Friends is to empower families in need to break the cycle of poverty. They make it possible for children and parents to earn basic necessities while they contribute to their community, learn life skills, and develop successful futures. Opportunities are provided instead of handouts.
Holy Spirit will serve with other groups on the first Sunday of each month at the Robert Kennedy School, which is at 1602 Lucretia Avenue in San Jose, about one block from Our Lady of Refuge.
Volunteers can choose to help with art projects, cooking projects, computer education, ESL classes, STEM classes, reading classes, other academic activities, or the toddler room while parents are attending parenting classes. We will meet at the school at 12:30 p.m. and will volunteer until 4:00 p.m.
During the summer months, a pilot program will be started with 15 spaces. The experience is open to families with children ages 8 and up. All minors must be accompanied by a parent. If this is your first time volunteering with Sunday Friends, please complete the registration form and bring it with you on Sunday.
