One idea for the upcoming long weekend is to plan a service opportunity in your community. Use this Step-by-Step Program from Fr. Michael Allelo at St. Philomena Catholic Church in Labadieville, Louisiana, to get started. Take some time to labor for others in your parish community — identifying people who could use a little extra help around the house, yard, or garden. This is a great opportunity to build inter-generational relationships and also fellowship with one another while you work.
