Students recently prepared 60 Easter Baskets for children receiving needs through Amistad Catholic Worker in New Haven. Classes enjoyed working together to assemble baskets including fun Easter themed novelties, as well as personal hand-crafted cards made by the Early Childhood Center.
The Amistad Catholic Worker is a community of faith dedicated to the daily practice of the Works of Mercy, voluntary poverty, personal-ism and prayer.
