We ended a very busy and campus-involved day with some time for just our students. As they prepare to move into finals week, this is the last time some of them will be able to gather in this group for this school year. We were able to squeeze in a round of "The Catholic Card Game". We will have one more opportunity this year to gather in Tuesday night fellowship. We look forward to our final supper and games of the year on May 2. We hope to see you all there!
It feels like just last week we were welcoming students to campus with a grill-out, and here we are, helping them Finish Strong! Last night, we had our annual year-end grill-out. We served just over 50 people as we wrapped up the year. We have a debt of thanks to our benefactor who donated 20 pounds of hamburger. We are also thankful for Olivia, Dave, Doreen and Shanda who assisted us with prep, serving and clean-up. May all who shared in our community meal have a blessed and restorative summer break, or a smooth transition into the work force after graduation. We were so happy to have hosted!

In celebration of Earth Day, Holy Redeemer hosted a "Beyond The Bin" recycling event for the young people, of all ages, served by our Faith Formation programs. Stephanie Bethke-DeJaeghere, who is the Environmental Technician Educator Coordinator for Lyon County, presented on a variety of initiatives people can be apart of regardless of their age.
Everyone was served an environmentally friendly meal and learned how to compost what was left. They also had the opportunity to learn about how clothing can be handled to reduce its environmental impact. Finally, they addressed the implications of our electronic waste.
Thank you to Stephanie for presenting, Mandy and Deidre for their support of the event, and all of our young people who attended. We greatly appreciated the way our college students were able to demonstrate how they are already utilizing composting at the Campus Religious Center.
