Helping Hands | Manos Unidas de CRS:
- Saturday, October 21: 11:00am – Downstairs Lobby
- Available to first 100 volunteers
- CRS Helping Hands is a Catholic volunteer and formation event that allows participants
to serve their brothers and sisters overseas in a tangible way. Rooted in our call
as Catholics to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world, volunteers work together
to address hunger in both the short term and the long term. Together, volunteers package
meals to send to people who suffer from chronic hunger as a result of cyclical drought
and flooding in the African nation of Burkina Faso. In addition, CRS Helping Hands
funds longer term, income-generating projects that allow our brothers and sisters
to build a future free from hunger.
I Can Only Imagine Movie Screening:
This year we have the great opportunity to offer a movie screening before it hits
- Saturday, October 21, 1:00pm-2:15pm in Ballroom 2
Based on the incredible true-life story that inspired the beloved, chart-topping song,

offer forgiveness to the unforgivable, and mend broken relationships.

Downes—the creative team behind Moms’ Night Out and Woodlawn. In theaters nationwide
on March 16th, 2018.
