Eleven students with Walsh University, Canton, are spending three days of their spring break with us in a unique service-learning opportunity.
These students are all majoring in a medical field and eventually wish to work with Hispanic populations. Much of their experience with the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown focuses on our Potter’s Wheel Ministry, which performs Hispanic outreach.
During these three days, the students will use our Motherhouse as their home base as they visit different locations in the Mahoning Valley that offer some sort of health-related service to the Hispanic community.
The Alternative Spring Breaks also introduce young adults to our religious community and ministries.
It has also allowed young women who are interested to form a closer relationship with our religious community. Last year, two of the young women from Walsh returned to be Companions in Mission with us in summer 2013 and accompanied Sister Norma Raupple on an international service trip for our Water With Blessings project. We’re glad to welcome them back once again for this ASB
