IVE Youth from Iceland and Holland
Missionary priests and sisters of our Religious Family have been working in Iceland and in Holland since 2004. This year they joined forces to plan a summer youth trip to the United States and Canada.
The itinerary for the combined group of 43 teenagers and young adults included sight-seeing, cultural events, and daily Mass and Rosary. For many of these young Catholics from highly secularized countries the fellowship and example of so many young religious and lay faithful in the United States was very encouraging. May God strengthen our missionaries and all the young visitors to be His faithful witnesses in the contemporary culture of Northern Europe.
English Language Exchange Students from Argentina
For the sixth year in a row, students from Isabel la Catolica High School in San Rafael, Argentina came to California on an English language exchange program. Our sisters in Argentina staff and administer this all-girls high school as well as a co-ed elementary and middle school.
After the three week intensive English course in Santa Clara, CA, seven students came to the East Coast to visit New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. Here we have been able to host them and share our culture — as well as practice speaking in English! May God bless them as they return to their studies in Argentina.
