When I first stepped into the Catholic Worker House with a group of teenagers from Saint John When I first stepped into the Catholic Worker House with a group of teenagers from Saint John Fisher led by Mrs. O'Neill, I had my doubts about the atmosphere I was entering. Entering a new environment brings new challenges and difficulties; how would I fit in there?

I was very nervous…meeting a lot of new people with different backgrounds from mine. I soon discovered that I had nothing to be afraid of; the kids were very open to new faces. Before lunch there is a gratitude circle where everyone says what they are thankful for. The first time I went, one of the kids said that she was thankful for me. I enjoyed the Catholic Worker house so much that I decided to go again and went twice a week until the program ended.

As soon as we pulled into the driveway of the “Green House,” I knew I was definitely out of my comfort zone. I had quickly said a prayer to myself, asking God to calm my nerves and to use me in whatever way He needed to help the children of Catholic Worker House. As soon as we pulled into the driveway of the “Green House,” I knew I was definitely out of my comfort zone.

The Archdiocese of Hartford is requesting that all parishes and schools encourage their young people (ages 16-29) to fill out the Archdiocesan Survey for Young People https://oeec.typeform.com/to/qPt9f0. Many dioceses throughout the world are preparing for the 2018 Synod of Bishops and this survey will help Archbishop Blair develop his report on the youth of the Archdiocese of Hartford for that Synod. More importantly, this survey will be beneficial for the Archdiocese, as it strives to hear and respond to the voice of our youth and young adults, who will have the chance to express their thoughts and concerns about their faith and values.
