St Andrew’s Cathedral Youth Volunteer at SPCK/USA
Twenty-eight youth and four adults from St Andrew’s (Jackson, MS), the Cathedral in the City, descended on the Sewanee mountain this week. Led by the Dean of the Cathedral, The Very Rev Edward O’Connor, these virbrant and exciting youth spent 2 1/2 hours working in the SPCK/USA warehouse. What can 28 youth and 4 adults do in that amount of time?
* Five shipments totaling over 300 books were prepared to go to the Caribbean, Ghana, and Uganda
* 30 boxes of books received from parishes and individuals were upacked (over 500 books) and shelved
* each young person wrote a personal letter to go with the shipments telling a little about themselves and their walk with Christ
The Very Rev Edward O’Connor graduated from The School of Theology-Sewanee. While he was in seminary he did work-study with the SPCK/USA Adopt-A-Seminary program. Almost every year, since he has graduated, he has brought the youth group from his parish to volunteer with the program.
