Today marks the beginning of Northern Illinois University's 2013 Service Trip, their 15th year coming with the PVs. They are, yet again, another wonderful group of students and we are looking forward to working with them throughout the week.
The first Sunday is always a time for community bonding for the group, Mass, biscuit world, hiking, get to know you activities, etc. As the day is starting to draw to a close, the group gets an orientation to the PVs, the area and the activities they will be participating in. The day finally wrapped up with the PV's traditional commission service to send the students forth for their week. Everyone is eager and ready for where ever the journey leads them.
Check back on the blog daily as we post about the activities and pictures from the adventures.
