Young Adult volunteers Emily Brierly, Joe Cassella, Sabrianna Cannizaro, and Sal Ubaldini helped out the Sisters of St. Dominic with a painting project at our Dominican House of Hospitality! These volunteers and 4 sisters ended up having a great time painting, laughing, and eating a lot!
During the three days that the students volunteered they stayed at our Dominican House of Hospitality. The four sisters who live in the house welcomed the young people with open arms. We ate together, prayed together and shared a wonderful spirit of laughter and fun during our time together. The students shared in the tasks involved in preparing our evening meal (cleaning up, etc.) and were happy to do so. They made themselves comfortable in the house and seemed very at ease being there.
One of the students who has been connected to DYA for quite a while speaks to her gatherings with the sisters as hanging with “my Nuns”. Each night we shared great conversations at dinner and listened to their stories. It was a truly holy time for all of us as they spoke openly about their faith and how they experienced God in their encounters with other people at school in their families or at work.
On Wednesday evening, as the students began saying goodbye, it was clear by the hugs and kisses that they enjoyed their time at the house and bonded with the sisters who live there. An open invitation was made to the group to come visit us again soon. Plans are already in the works to do something similar to this next year. Though they ate us out of house and home, the house was so eerily quite after they left that we could truly say “We missed them already.”
