Today we got an early start, leaving New Orleans at 5:30am to drive to the Thensted Center in St. Landry Parish, about a 2 1/2 hour drive, past Baton Rouge and near Lafayette. The Thensted Center, named after Fr. Cornelius J. Thensted, SJ was established n 1974 by Sr. Margaret “Mike” Hoffman, RSCJ to further the outreach ministry of Fr. Thensted helping those in need. Today our Network students helped with the summer program, helping with math, art, life skills, and other activities. We’ll have lunch with the kids and then head to the Schools of the Sacred Heart (Academy of the Sacred Heart/Berchmans Academy) and visit their campus next door.
