Catholic teens in St. Louis examine plight of the homeless

Parents who believe their children don’t understand the hardships of life may want to read a story about a group of teenage parishioners in St. Louis who got a close look at what it’s like to live as a homeless person.

The account in the Oct. 24 issue of the St. Louis Review, newspaper of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, tells how the encounter with the homeless became a life-changing event in the lives of these youths.

One high school girl said she saw the “face of Christ” when she looked into the eyes of homeless people and their children during the parish-run retreat.
