Women interested in discerning vocation as a Presentation Sister are
invited again this year to participate in the New Orleans collaborative
ministry volunteer program, March 15 through 21, 2009. Last year, the
participants had a great experience helping others, learning about the
Presentation call to ministry, and learning about the effects of Katrina
on New Orleans and the efforts that have been made to rebuild the city.
The thirteen directors and women discerning volunteered their services through Christopher Homes and Catholic Charities of New Orleans. The volunteer program was an opportunity for the women to learn more about the charism of the Sisters of the Presentation and to put that charism into action by helping others in some very basic ways. Volunteer activities for the week included helping with dry walling, painting, and yard work at one home under construction and at other sites.
They also volunteered with the Presentation Sisters who minister at Lantern Light in New Orleans. At the Lantern Light center, volunteers prepared and served lunches, participated with the clients in activities, and helped with basic chores such as restocking pantry shelves and gardening. Lantern Light is one of several organizations that operate the Rebuild Center which provides basic services to the homeless and those trying to rebuild their houses and lives after the devastating Katrina hurricane.
