CrossRoaders Explore “Vocation & Suffering”

CrossRoaders Explore “Vocation & Suffering”


Early Tuesday morning, the CrossRoad participants went into Cambridge to break bread with the homeless. In small groups of one staff member and three or four students, the CrossRoaders approached people, bought them breakfast, and sat and ate with them, learning about their lives and getting to know them. It was an extremely moving experience for all. It is very profound to acknowledge Christ in the face of a neighbor that we so often overlook.

Later, the participants engaged in the staff-led session, “Vocation & Suffering.” In the evening, the group had the blessing of hearing a talk on “Prayer & Purity” by our beloved Dr. Albert Rossi, who has been a CrossRoad guest speaker since the first program in 2004.

The participants have been busy learning how to take the information they have received over the past week and put it into action by serving Christ and neighbor!
