    What Does it Mean to be Poor?

    Students will be encouraged to explore the meaning of poverty here in the United States as well as around the world. What does poverty look like? What happens when people don’t have enough to eat or a home to sleep? How can we help? Why is help for the poor central to Jesus’ message?
