The Spiritual Life Program offers each young person the unconditional love of an understanding, forgiving God (or Higher Power). In doing so, we honor and nurture the faith tradition of the young person and his or her family.
The ministry of the Spiritual Life Program can be summed up in three words: Sanctuary, Grace and Hope. Sanctuary means creating a safe place where young people can explore their thoughts and feelings as they contemplate the deeper meanings of life and faith. Grace seeks to surround every young person with unconditional love and acceptance while at the same time enforcing the boundaries and structures necessary for living in community. Hope offers the assurance that life is worth living and that better days are possible.
As young people experience sanctuary, grace and hope in their relationships with staff members and with each other, they are encouraged to see God (Higher Power) as the ultimate giver of these gifts. Our prayer is that the positive seeds of life and faith planted here at the Children's Home will take root and blossom in the lives of our young people.
