Youth Ministry (Teens)

The Summer in the City is a week-long immersion project where the participant is given the opportunity to live and work the gospel of service and social justice through the gift of self. The combination of service at multiple worksites and reflection sessions gives young people the chance to use their talents and abilities to help their neighbor and increase their awareness and understanding of the importance of the rights and dignity of the human person. Lodging will take place at the Blessed Carlo Acutis Youth Center in Absecon. Work sites include Father Benedict House, Holy Cross Cemetery, The Acutis Center, Food Bank and Soup Kitchens.
