Teens4Unity Service Weekend

Sponsored by the Focolare Movement

We hope to see you at the first Service Weekend of the year!

Don't miss this chance to attend the Focolare/Teens4Unity Service Weekend with some very special opportunities!

Last month, some Teens4Unity gathered to discuss the suffering in the city that strikes them the most. Once we identified these "grey areas", we looked for some service projects that would help us start to "Color our City"! We kick start this project on the 3rd weekend of September.

Saturday Morning: Miracle League

Saturday, Sep. 19th, 8:30am-1:30pm

16725 Longenbaugh Drive

Houston, TX

The Miracle League Sports program is designed specifically for children with disabilities. The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the field and allows them to experience playing as part of a team. One of the main barriers for these children is the natural grass field used in conventional youth leagues. The Miracle League plays on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other devices while helping to prevent injuries.

Teens4Unity will have the honor of helping individual players during the game.

Required: Comfy, light clothes. Sports shoes.
