Carving Pumpkins


To get in the Halloween spirit, the Casa San Salvador intentional community of young adults carved pumpkins.

“Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. God opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff– including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then God carves you a new smiling face and puts God’s light inside you to shine for all the world to see.”

Happy Halloween!

We prepare and support lay Catholics for two-year international, one-year domestic and 1-2 week short-term mission service opportunities in solidarity with impoverished and marginalized communities across the globe.
