- Why do you want to volunteer?
“I want to serve people who have been on the margins of society. I want to learn how the Church and the community can better support the poor and our youth, and I want to meet Christ in the people I serve.”
- Why do you want to volunteer with Precious Blood Volunteers?
“I love Precious Blood Volunteer’s focus on spirituality and reconciliation in service, and I appreciate that they have long-term connections with the city and the organizations where we serve. I think it’s a sustainable way for the volunteers and the city to benefit from our service.”
- What are you looking forward to about your volunteer experience?
“I’m excited to spend time focused completely on others – college is an intense time of self-growth and encourages you to focus on your own knowledge and studies, so I am excited to transition into a time of being other-focused. Of course I’m excited to live with priests! And to see the Kansas City library!”
