Poland: Work Camps

A group of 20 Polish university students traveled to the city of Lvov in Ukraine to help in the construction of a house for disadvantaged young people and children from a district administered by the parish priest of Lvov Cathedral. Another group of 15 volunteers went to Lwowek Slaski in southwest Poland, to give special classes to boys in the village and to help provide a recreation area in the social center run by the Franciscan Fathers. They also provided assistance in a Caritas social center. These activities gave the students practical experience of giving their time to help more needy persons. The young men taking part received pastoral attention from a priest of the Prelature.
