Hunger for Justice Service Retreat


Here at Bishop Feehan High School, students are encouraged to complete service hours. Service hours are a way for any individual to help in society by performing the different works of mercy. At Feehan not everyone has to do the same service opportunity but must receive the same amount of hours to graduate. Ways that someone could fullfill their needed hours could be feeding the homeless, attending specific retreats, granting knowledge to young people and helping out those who are less fortunate. All of these can be different works of mercy throughout different opportunities.

In Quincy, Massachusetts there is a church named Saint John the Baptist. At this church they provide a service project for young adults in highschool. This service project consists of 30 hours of not eating, making sandwiches for the homeless, going to a good friday ritual, sleeping in cardboard boxes and most certainly giving the made sandwiches to the homeless people in Boston. By not eating for 30 hours shows the participants the unfairness of not being able to eat on a regular basis, not everyone is given the opportunity to have 3 meals a day. Everyone attending the retreat made sandwiches to give to the people in Boston. Sleeping in boxes helped interpret that not everyone has a roof over their head and may not have access to a “regular” bed like many have. Overall this retreat was meant to show people the diversity of lives people live. That some people are less fortunate than others and to respect and give back when possible.
