young adult service retreat
Voices for Earth Justice staff Rich Samartino, Patty Gillis, and Naim Edwards, and summer intern Theresa Beckley-Amaya participated in the St. Paul of the Cross Passionist Retreat Center’s young adult service retreat. The first day started with a service project at our neighbor Bianca Danzy's property across the street from Hope House, where volunteers gutted the burned out house, so it can be restored as a garden center. Other volunteers cleared the back yard of brush, and painted at Hope House.
Back at the retreat center, we reflected on the call to a life of service, and discussed social justice issues in Detroit and beyond.
