On March 6, we welcomed a group of 9 people from Michigan State University for their Alternative Spring Break experience. During the week, the students learned about and carried out the mission of the Sisters of the Holy Redeemer and Redeemer Ministry Corps. Service sites include:
- Drueding Center – a transitional housing program for women and children
- S.P.I.N. – providing services and support to adults and children with intellectual, developmental and autism spectrum disabilities
- Inglis House – a specialty nursing care facility providing long-term, residential care for adults with physical disabilities
- Redeemer-Lafayette – an independent and skilled nursing facility for older adults
- Cradles to Crayons – providing children ages 0 to 12 with the most important basics of life at no charge
On Thursday, a special dinner was held in honor of National Catholic Sisters Week. The students were able to discuss vocations with the Sisters over a “taste of Philly” dinner, which was followed up by a prayer service and evening of sharing.
We are so grateful that the students have shared their time and talents with us, and we wish them the best as they finish their semester at MSU!
