Springs of Hope, Fall 2015
In this issue of Fontbonne Ministries' Springs of Hope newsletter, we reflect on the impact of volunteering as well as the ways in which each of the ministries invites participants, staff and volunteers into relationship and community.
Recently, I was describing the work of Fontbonne Ministries to someone. They responded, “What an amazing diversity!” At the core of that diversity is our deeply held commitment to welcome everyone without distinction and be present in a meaningful way to those who come to one of the ministries.
It is always affirming when our annual report comes out each year and we see the number of people who have passed through our doors, but even more affirming are the individual stories that we hear each day.
This issue's stories include:
- The Gift of Volunteering
- Studio on the Hill: The Joy of Children
- Village Mosaic: A Creative Community
- Faith Connections: A Spiritual Experience
- In Good Company: Roleplaying for Volunteers
- Fontbonne Place: An Unexpected Community
- Mustard Seed: A Supportive Environment
- Visiting the Birthplace of the Sisters of St. Joseph
Enjoy a small taste of some of these stories within this newsletter!
