An Act of Service Brings One Correctional Facility Resident Closer to God

Cross
As Catholics, we are called to serve. It's an act that brings us closer to God, and closer to our fellow man. For one resident of a Missouri correctional facility, the opportunity to serve by helping with sandbagging efforts in Clarksville filled her with great joy and gratitude. This Catholic Missourian article highlights her story. An excerpt:
 

"It was an amazing, very humbling experience," said Jean Solis, a resident of the Women's Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center (WERDCC) in Vandalia, who helped with the sandbagging in Clarksville. "I just wanted to go out and help them," she said. "It was the best feeling in my whole life." She knows where that desire and the peace and satisfaction that came with it are from. "From Jesus, for sure!" she said. "He gave us Himself, and that's what we should all want to do."
