Notes from the Field

Notes from the Field are reports from young people volunteering in ministries of Catholic sisters, a project in partnership with Catholic Volunteer Network since the summer of 2015.
This latest round in the series features one volunteer at the United Nations in New York City and another in Haiti.

The tenet of simplicity when it's intentional, optional

Notes from the Field - Those of us who grew up in a religious environment can attest to hearing "Live simply so that others can simply live" rather often. One of the goals of being a Good Shepherd Volunteer is to implement this idea, focusing on the tenant of simplicity in our own lives while serving alongside communities that don't necessarily have a choice in living this value.
