In 1994, I was 16 and I was sent on a “mission trip” to the Philippines with 20 or so other youth from an evangelical church. We were going to save the Filipinos one city at a time. I remember the plane ride being interminable; no matter how many movies I’d watch or how often I checked the seatback GPS, we never seemed to leave the Pacific Ocean. Finally we arrived to Osaka, a layover before Manila

COLORADO SPRINGS. The old adage “actions speak louder than words” applies perfectly to the latest addition to the Corpus Christi Parish grounds.  The support of the diocese for families, especially mothers, who have lost children has always been expressed verbally, but recently the Corpus Christi Youth Group (CCYG) has taken action to visually demonstrate the love and support of the diocese by installing a garden for mothers who are grieving the loss of a child.
