Tomorrow morning, Sunday, February 11, 2018, Martin Echtler will be returning to his home in Munich, Germany. Martin completed his service as a Precious Blood Volunteer at the Bishop Sullivan Center on Friday, February 8. Martin’s positive personality and desire to learn from others will be missed.
At the Bishop Sullivan Center, Martin helped out in a variety of ways including supervising the community kitchen, working in the food pantry, assisting in the front desk, being part of the jobs training program, and much more!
Martin will be doing a trainee-program for teaching at a vocational school, close to the equivalent of a community college in the US. He will be teaching economics at a school in Dachau four days a week and Catholic theology in Landshut one day a week.
We wish Martin all the best and are grateful for his time as part of the Precious Blood community.
