Boys Volunteer at Terence Cardinal Cooke
The boys are members of the all-volunteer "Headmaster's Community Club." They elect to spend their free time after the school day ends interacting with elderly residents, many of whom are facing a variety of challenges.
The boys engage in one-on-one conversation with residents and participate in craft projects, games, and other holiday themed celebrations.
I am always deeply impressed by the number of boys who willingly give of their free time and the enthusiastic spirit they bring to their visits.
It is heartwarming to watch the boys grow emotionally as they deepen their connections to the residents with each successive visit.
To look inward in search of truth and goodness is to recognize that we must act outward in service and good will to others.
