Judaism has always been a part of my life. It has shaped and molded my values and beliefs. It has taught me humility and empathy for everyone and everything around me. And it has empowered me and it's defeated me. The only thing Judaism will not do to me is leave me.

Fr. Mychal Judge, OFM would often say "What you receive as a gift, give as a gift," and so it has been one of the great blessings of my career in campus ministry to bring students to Saint Francis Inn Ministries in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. I first encountered the Inn as a student myself, on my first service trip, and over the years I have learned that, while there are many good places that feed the hungry and homeless, there is no place like Saint Francis Inn.

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week is a national effort with an international focus. Days before Thanksgiving, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) is an opportunity to remind us what we’re thankful for, while calling to mind those, who in our global society, are experiencing hunger and homelessness. Defined as a social movement, HHAW is a platform where everyone involved can play a part in highlighting injustices, and put pressure on lawmakers to make positive change that will unite our society.

This year, the Rosemont College Summer Service Immersion embarked on a true adventure. These 9 Rosemont students would be immersed in a world so very different from their own at Camp Twitch and Shout. Not only were they surrounded by thick Southern accents, without a Wawa in 300 miles, but soon they’d be introduced to the Camp Twitch and Shout community, which as its tongue in cheek name suggests, is a camp chock full of children and adults with Tourette Syndrome.
