Seattle PVs Are Off and Running!

Today marks the beginning of the 2015 Seattle PV Program. Even though we usually don't do a service project on the first day, we were asked to step in and help out with a community dinner that the churches in West Seattle host once a month. Our Lady of Guadalupe parish hosts the event each month, but a different church steps up and prepares the the meal to serve to anyone in the community that wants to come. Today there were over a 100 people that came to enjoy the meal. The PVs helped out by serving and busing the tables when the guests were finished. It was a great experience to work side by side with the other volunteers and meet the wonderful people that came to eat.

Since this was the first day of the program we did do an orientation to the week and to Seattle and also did the PV commissioning ceremony to start the week off on a great note. We were able to finish up all the beginning of the week activities in time to partake in another Seattle tradition, watching a Seattle Sounders soccer game. While we couldn't be there in person, we still wore Sounders scarves and enjoyed the game, especially as they beat their long time rivals.

We look forward to a great week ahead and hope you will join us in the journey.
