Teens from our parish leave on Friday, June 22 for the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota for a service trip. Pine Ridge is home to the Oglala Lakota, a tribe that is part of the Sioux people, and one of the poorest areas in the United States.
Six teens will go, including Jesse Devitt, Angelo Guzzo, Curran White, Liam Connors, Luke Kaufmann, and Lauren Le. Please keep them, and the chaperones, Emily Egan and Jim Potthast, in your thoughts and prayers.
The group will return to Chicago on Sunday, July 1.
