"I was in prison and you came to visit me … I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."

Matthew 25:36, 40

In this unique service opportunity, Sheil Catholic Center members minister to young men ages 12 to 17 at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago. Along with participants from Kolbe House Ministries of the Archdiocese of Chicago and Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation, we visit with several adolescents for three hours every week.

Participants must be at least 21 years old. For more information or to sign up, please contact Tim Higgins at t-higgins@u.northwestern.edu or (847) 328-4648.
