S.T.A.R.R. volunteers branched out to several different sites all over Indianapolis. Photo coverage this week is from Miracle Place on the west side.
Miracle place is a great place to serve the youth of our city. An after school program for Pre-K through Middle School students, it provides structure and teaches christian values that offer guidance to kids.
This week, the program at Miracle Place included making Christmas ornaments to sell at an upcoming event to fundraise for the organization.
The greatest fruit of service for me is the relationships that come of it. The beauty of God's creation is most evident in the people I meet in service. Seeing the joy in the faces of the children at miracle place makes me think about the immensity and greatness of God. However joyful, graceful, and loving the people that we meet are, it is nothing compared to the joy, grace, and incomprehensible love of our God.
This is why I serve.

Young spinach can difficult to distinguish from certain grassy weeds. After a quick lesson on how to tell the difference, students were turned loose to eradicate the unwelcome greenery.
Sophomore Declan McNicholas works alongside fellow students. Although a Seminarian at Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary, Declan attends S.T.A.R.R. regularly.
The group rallies for a closing prayer around S.T.A.R.R. coordinator Keith Dewig. After working together in the sun, water was passed around before breaking up and heading back to Marian University.
