During the Diocesan Youth Service Day Retreat, each grade level met in small groups. They were asked to come up with their own definition on what it means to Serve Compassionately. This is what they wrote.
6th grade: Feeling very strongly about something or someone and helping the cause or the person simply because you want to.
7th grade: Being their for someone that needs you. Just being a friend and not serving just to do it.
8th grade: Serving others and living through love like Jesus did - unconditionally and always.
9th/10th grade: Serving with love even if it makes you uncomfortable.
11th grade: Loving no matter what and always helping people.
12th grade: To recognize another person's value regardless of your differences, and welcome them into your church or community through love and charity.
