Justice Outreach Project – 2019
A Week Of Service, Learning, and Solidarity
Centered on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching
Little Flower Parish and the Blackfeet people invite youth, young adults, and their adult chaperones to Browning, MT – the heart of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation – to help build the Kingdom of God through the hard work of mutual respect, unity, and love.
The Week Explained
Every year is different. The schedule can change by the minute due to weather, emergencies, and more. The information here is meant to provide broad information, not a detailed description of every activity. Be prepared to adapt!
Our schedule is a mix of prayer, service/work, fun, and cultural experiences. Generally, we begin each day with Mass, followed by outside work projects before the heat of the day. Afternoons are a mix of rest, play, and cultural experiences. Evenings are reserved for speakers and activities to encounter Blackfeet culture, history, and spirituality.
Everything we do is rooted in the Holy Spirit. We will learn about Catholic/Blackfeet spiritual practices. We will pray in large and small groups, as well as take time for personal prayer and reflection.
Common work projects include: painting, cleaning, reclaiming gravesites, mending fences, light yard work, etc.
Prominent members of the Blackfeet Nation will lead activities and present on a variety of topics, including Blackfeet-Catholic history, games, life on a modern-day reservation, dances, Stick Game, food, etc. We will also participate in the annual Native American Indian Days festivities, including the Powwow and Indian Rodeo.
