St. John's student learn about community service through raking
By the end of the day Thursday, the students at St.John the Baptist Catholic Church in Vermillion had filled 119 bags with leaves.
That's a lot of leaves. But there is more to the story.
The leaf-raking on Oct. 11, was the first of the projects that will be tied in with The Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI. The year began Oct. 11 and will conclude Nov. 24, 2013.
