Last night around 10:00 (OK, exactly at 10 when they said they were going to arrive, impressive!) twelve adventurous college students from the Newman Center at NIU arrived at their home for the week, The Way Youth Center/Made New Church in Mullens, WV in Wyoming County. After getting settled, the weary travelers had a good night’s sleep.
Today the group started off the day with a trip to Beckley for Mass and then spent the rest of the beautiful spring-like day enjoying Twin Falls State Park and bonding together as a community. After dinner we had an orientation session and moved right into our commissioning service, preparing them for the week ahead. We are looking forward to a great week and working with these wonderful students.
