Energy and commitment of young Christians is a wonderful sign of hope, reader says

The Scripture readings on Feb. 9 encouraged us to help those in need

We, our family, friends and neighbors, have a variety of needs. Needs may be urgent, evident or chronic. Needs may be unnoticed, inconvenient or ignored. Christians are called to be aware, to see, to listen, to care.

Several articles featured in the Feb. 7 issue of The Criterion seemed to dovetail with the Sunday Scripture.

It was especially exciting to see and hear of so many young people being involved in a variety of corporal works of mercy.

I am proud to publicize that our Holy Name School in Beech Grove recently collected more than 5,000 items to restock our pantry.

Young Catholics are involved with the Altar Society, St. Vincent de Paul, Gabriel Project, Prayer Chain, Scouts, athletics and so many other worthwhile endeavors.

Dolan Monroe, a 2012 graduate of Holy Name School, won an essay contest and the opportunity to go to Rome for the canonization liturgy of Blessed Pope John XXIII and Blessed John Paul II in April.

The energy and commitment of these young Christians is a wonderful sign of hope.
