Mar. 2, 2018 — The Catholic non-profit group Christ in the City hosted a speaker in all Senior Studies block classes today. Volunteer Canon Howell talked about what the organization does around the Denver area and encouraged seniors to participate after high school.

Christ in the City was founded in 2010 in Denver, CO to serve the city’s poor and homeless. The group sends volunteers to major cities in the United States, including Omaha. Those volunteers spend days at a time with the impoverished and less fortunate of whatever city they travel to, providing friendship and company to those they encounter.

According to their website, the mission of the Christ in the City is to “form missionaries, volunteers and communities in knowing, loving and serving the poor”. What volunteers get out of the experiences of helping the poor is varied. “Many volunteers make new friends they never knew they needed,” Howell said.

Volunteers don’t give money to the individuals they meet in their work. Instead, they give their time, necessary commodities such as toothpaste and other supplies and general kindness the homeless otherwise would not receive. “We greet the homeless person with a handshake and ask them how they’re doing,” Howell explained.

The visit correlates with seniors’ current examinations of Catholic Social Teaching and how its principles can be applied in daily life.
