This year, we will be going to Denver, CO to work with Christ in the City. The week will be spent serving both within homeless shelters as well as throughout downtown Denver. Participants will engage in education surrounding homelessness, spirituality, and Catholic Social Teaching, as well as have opportunities for prayer.
