Segment 3 & 4 – Christ in the City young adults hit streets to tell the homeless they are loved
“Through the Denver-based apostolate, young adult missionaries seek out and find the friendship of homeless individuals in cities across the country by building a series of relationships as they walk the city streets. From May 21 to June 11, nine Christ in the City missionaries have been living at the Our Lady of the Rosary Student Center and walking every Monday through Friday through Detroit’s Midtown and downtown areas for three and a half hours a day, encountering the poor and forgotten, reminding them of Christ’s love for them and their inherent human dignity.”  Two members of this group join Vanessa today, Brogan McNease and Helen Van Wijngaarden, to share their experience in Detroit.
