Serving the Nation
In partnership with Rebuilding Together Montgomery County, the parish supports the efforts of AmeriCorps by making space available for training new community volunteers, who repair the homes of low-income elderly, disabled, and families with children.
AmeriCorps members serve with Rebuilding Together for 11 months. There is a class that begins in August and one that begins in January. Each class goes through a week of orientation and then through a week of service before going to their assigned affiliate. Rebuilding Together has used the undercroft for the orientation of the AmeriCorps volunteers. This is what you may have witnessed this January – their piles of materials and food in the undercroft.
