Teens invited to volunteer with Sisters of Providence
Calling all youth! Calling all youth!
Sister Joni Luna, who coordinates the opportunity, said that all young volunteers will have the chance to interact with many Sisters of Providence, Providence Health Care residents and staff. They will assist with events like Bingo, exercise, baking, singing and more.
“This is an opportunity to invite young people to come and share in the works of love, mercy and justice of the Sisters of Providence,” Sister Joni said. “For these young volunteers, it is about sharing who they are – their gifts and talents – with sisters, residents and staff who are welcoming and affirming to them.”
Six volunteer sessions are scheduled beginning with the Dec. 18, session, and continuing in 2022 on Jan. 15, Feb. 12, March 12 and April 16. There are 10 volunteer positions per session and registration is required.
Each Saturday session will begin at 9 a.m., and conclude at 2 p.m. Volunteers meet each day at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.
“It is a lot of fun. And at the same time, our teen volunteers will receive valuable life experiences and learn from the wisdom of our residents,” Sister Joni said.
