FAITH is the heart of Just5Days. Our theme this summer is inspired by the scripture passage 1 Corinthians 12:27 “Now, you are the Body of Christ!” and the catholic social teaching principle of solidarity.
SERVICE during Just5Days places youth in direct, hands-on work that meets real needs of a local community.
Our service sites include working with the elderly, those with disabilities, low income families, community soup kitchens, or assisting various nonprofit charitable organizations.
PRAYER begins and ends each day of Just5Days.
In every community prayer service, there are opportunities for youth to have leadership roles by proclaiming the Word and by sharing their voices in song. Our week of service culminates with a celebration of the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
COMMUNITY within Just5Days is fostered through age appropriate activities, group discussions, and simulation games. Additionally, by their direct service out in the community, youth gain a better understanding of socioeconomic and cultural diversities.
CATHOLIC is who we are! Just5Days promotes the principles of our Catholic faith, Sacred Scriptures, teachings of Pope Francis, and other holy men and women who have heard the call to follow Jesus and serve with love.
