1. X-post from GD Student Pallbearers Serve the Underprivileged


School is out for the summer, and may students are spending their with friends or working a summer job. But some students at the Cleveland, Ohio-based high school St. Ignatius are also spending time doing an unlikely act of service.

More than 400 juniors and seniors at this all-male Catholic school volunteer in the Saint Joseph of Arimathea Ministry, a student organization that leads funerals for deceased people who were homeless, financially insecure, or simply didnít have anyone to give them a dignified burial.

Over the past 12 years, the Pallbearers Ministry has led hundreds of funerals. Burying the dead, these students learn that every person is worthy of dignity and care, a lesson that makes them more conscious of how they treat the living.

2. oh my gosh, that is amazing...

Thank you so much, japple.

Turns out I am still not able to post regularly...but not many people are here anyway...so we'll all just do the best we can.

I love this story though. Thank you again.
