They will have a chance to reflect on how being Catholic can help form their ideals and anchor their sense of place in the world.

Editorial reviews

Catholic Library World, December, 2006

Constance Fourre packs a great deal of information into such a small volume, from checklists and short personal evaluations, and designing personal projects to finding a project that reflects the individual's level of commitment and style.

Content coverage is thorough, and this book is recommended for those wishing to initiate a reflective and committed service project whether alone or with others.
