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.
