MADISON -- The mission trip is a long-standing tradition, made available only to juniors at Edgewood High School. It is a service immersion experience.

Immersion experience

Part of the time students are involved in direct service. Part of the time students are learning about social justice issues such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, incarceration, racism, and immigration.

Part of the time students pray and reflect on their experiences. But, all of the time students are immersed in environments that open their eyes to the realities faced by so many marginalized people in our country.

MADISON -- St. Ambrose Academy students are developing love for Jesus both in the classroom and the chapel throughout the school year.

But, in order to embody the school motto "Christ is Everything for Us," that love must also spill over into acts of charity toward others, bringing the love that God has for us into our regular habits and actions.

On Friday, Oct. 19, the entire student body put that principle into practice at 15 sites throughout the Diocese of Madison -- from Camp Gray in Reedsburg to The Beacon in downtown Madison and Second Harvest on the east side -- during the fall semester Service Day.

How to walk the talk/Cómo practicar lo que se predica

Do you wish you had a manual to change the world? Did you know there is an app for young people to "change ourselves with the Gospel first, and then our closest surroundings, and finally the whole world"?

The DOCAT (pronounced "do-cat") is a catechism for youth about Catholic social teaching that was introduced at World Youth Day Krakow, in Poland. It answers 328 questions that explain what it means to be Christian in your family, work and society. Questions like: If God created the world out of love, why is there injustice and suffering? What does freedom mean? What does globalization actually mean? How can interreligious cooperation reinforce involvement in social issues?
