On January 14th , I helped serve dinner at Immacare Shelter. I found this to be especially meaningful because it opened up my eyes to a reality I thankfully have never experienced. The shelter was initially a scary place for me to visit. I wasn’t prepared for the dull and sad feeling it would give me. However, I still put on a smile and tried to show happiness to those eating our dinner.

When I first stepped into the Catholic Worker House with a group of teenagers from Saint John When I first stepped into the Catholic Worker House with a group of teenagers from Saint John Fisher led by Mrs. O'Neill, I had my doubts about the atmosphere I was entering. Entering a new environment brings new challenges and difficulties; how would I fit in there?

I was very nervous…meeting a lot of new people with different backgrounds from mine. I soon discovered that I had nothing to be afraid of; the kids were very open to new faces. Before lunch there is a gratitude circle where everyone says what they are thankful for. The first time I went, one of the kids said that she was thankful for me. I enjoyed the Catholic Worker house so much that I decided to go again and went twice a week until the program ended.

As soon as we pulled into the driveway of the “Green House,” I knew I was definitely out of my comfort zone. I had quickly said a prayer to myself, asking God to calm my nerves and to use me in whatever way He needed to help the children of Catholic Worker House. As soon as we pulled into the driveway of the “Green House,” I knew I was definitely out of my comfort zone.
