Philly trip update

I should have mentioned the amazing Trinity students who gave up their week to serve the people of Saint Francis Inn in Philadelphia. All of the students are juniors:

Michael Aldana Proulx
Sheena Dion
Kelsey Nalette
Skylar Pepin
Michelle Puthota
Thomas Tarr
Kerry Twomey
Katie Wentworth

They, along with Mrs. Tarr and Mr. Wentworth, are living the famous saying of Saint Francis: "Preach the gospel always, when necessary use words."


  1. Was this through Catholic Heart WorkCamp?

  2. Hi Allison - no, we send groups there. I have heard a lot about CHWC - would you recommend it?

  3. Whole heartedly. We just returned home from it and had a fabulous experience - http://www.allisonwelch.com/myfirstyear/2011/07/chwc.html Granted, it's the first time I've done anything like it, so I've nothing to compare it to. I loved the mission trip itself, the fun of meeting new people, dancing, singing and being silly, but wrapping it up in my faith with Mass, reconciliation, rosary, scripture based skits and evangelism was the pretty ribbon on the whole package.
