We have safely arrived in East LA after a long day and a half drive. Our first day at Dolores Mission was busy but really great!
We were welcomed here by our host Joanna (a Jesuit Volunteer) and a very lively crowd at the 9 AM Mass. Many of the students were asked to participate in Mass this morning which was awesome.
We have traveled a bit today to see the city and have also talked with amazing people to tell us about the neighborhood. There will be much to learn and see in the week ahead and everyone seems pretty excited about it.
Thanks for you thoughts and prayers and you will soon be hearing from students in the blog about their experiences.
