We are finally beginning to see the sun here in Syracuse. The cold and darkness of Winter is passing into memory and the warmth of Summer is on the horizon. FrancisCorps 18 continues to toil, bringing joy, love and peace to those that they serve, providing vital services to those in need. Veronica, Kaitlyn, and Nicolette in Syracuse and Veronica and Nina in Costa Rica have spent the year growing and changing. They have built communities rich in love and compassion, shared deep and meaningful prayer, and served with open hands and open hearts. This experience of service, prayer and community is only possible because of your prayers, hospitality, donations and encouragement. On behalf of all of us at FrancisCorps, we want to say thank you for all of your amazing and continued support!
Like the changing of the seasons, the year of service these volunteers have shared will also be fading into memory, but it will not be easily forgotten. FrancisCorps is not something that volunteers experience in passing but something that burrows deep into their souls. They continue to hear the voices of their community members and see the faces of those that they served. They remember the lessons the FrancisCorps experience made plain for them. Marie continues to see everything as a gift and Brady is reminded to keep God at the center of all she does. These are powerful reminders of how much FrancisCorps can impact the lives of the volunteers who experience it.
FrancisCorps is blessed to be welcoming 11 young adults this coming year who are ready to open their minds and hearts to this experience of service, ready to allow the challenges and blessings to truly change who they are and who they will become. The service they will provide is essential and their growth will be undeniable, but in order to provide this experience we need your help.
Our goal for this year’s Annual Appeal is $10,000. You can click here to make a donation. Each gift is such a blessing, so Thank You in advance!
Our benefactors, friends, and supporters are always in our prayers and please keep the volunteers in yours as they transition into and out of their year of service.
