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.

Our Marian shrine
