CYFM's College Capuchin Outreach Program

<

 

The College Capuchin Outreach Program is designed for college students who wish to do service during their winter break. The program is based out of the CYFM retreat center in Garrison, New York. It begins on the first Sunday after January 1st and goes until Thursday afternoon. During the day the participants work at various jobs around the Hudson Valley area. Some of the work sites consist of manual labor (Habitat for Humanity) while others involve more interaction, these sites include but are not limited to nursing homes and hospice care centers. In the evenings the workers come back to the retreat center and have time for fellowship and faith building. Every night there is a theological reflection on the days work, and members from different work sites get together and discuss their day. At the end of the week there is a talent show where all the participants can do skits and show off their talents (or their lack of talents). This program is consistently one of the most popular at CYFM and has had a waiting list in the past.

Christine Logigian, CCOP Participant: “College COP was an awesome experience. It brought me closer to God and others by living out the teaching of St. Francis, community, simplicity, and service. To be able to share the Eucharist with others and see the enthusiasm they have for God and his ways helps to build a stronger and deeper faith and enhance the experience.”
