Interfaith Service Week @ Jerusalem Farm:  July 17-23, 2016

Build a foundation of peace with us as we invite you to live in community for one week serving those who are in need, with sisters and brothers with diverse religious experiences.   The KC Interfaith Youth Alliance and Jerusalem Farm invite high school aged youth to a week of service in the Kansas City Community.  Participants can expect to learn about one another while working together repairing homes for those who need your help.  You will live in community and learn about sustainable living, organic gardening and simplicity as you get to know one another without the typical distractions of the world. 

Jerusalem Farm is an intentional community using the four cornerstones of Community, Service, Simplicity and Prayer as their foundation. The Farm roots its heritage in the Catholic tradition and welcomes all people of all faiths seeking opportunities to gather in peace and for understanding.  

"Interreligious (understanding) must extend as far as possible to all believers, engaging the different sectors of civil society. Particular attention must be paid to young men and women who are called to build the future.”    Pope Francis, June 2015
