Regina girls traveled to Jerusalem Farm in Kansas City, Missouri for a week of service and prayer this summer. Students were able to put their lessons in Catholic Social Teaching into action throughout the week alongside other high school students.
Jerusalem Farm is a small intentional community consisting of five adults. The community is based on four pillars: prayer, service, community and simplicity. Catholic groups around the United States spend time at the farm during the summer. While at Jerusalem Farm, Regina girls participated in service projects during the day, spent time in prayer and came together as a community during the evenings. “We all lived simply throughout the week which included bucket showers and fasting from cell phones,” said theology teacher Kasey Bree.
“It was really inspiring for us as a group, students and teachers, to embrace the values of prayer, service, community and simplicity for a week,” said Bree. “The girls didn’t want to leave!”
The trip to Jerusalem Farm will be an annual summer opportunity for sophomore and junior students.
