Ten Christian Brothers Academy students are in Browning, Montana this week, volunteering at the De La Salle Blackfeet School on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.
The trip out west has become an annual affair led by Director of Campus Ministry, Mr. Tim Sewing. Mr. Sewing is accompanied by Theology teacher Mr. Matt Butler this year.
The students’ main work comes at the fellow De La Salle school in Browning. The De La Salle Blackfeet School was established in 2001 by the Midwest District of the Christian Brothers. It serves a remote region on an Indian Reservation bordered by Canada to the north and Glacier National Park to the west. The school provides a Catholic education to those who are economically disadvantaged in this rural setting.
Meanwhile, the Academy men have been able to experience mass at Little Flower Catholic Church in Browning, while also taking hikes through nearby Glacier National Park.
“These guys are doing great so far,” Sewing reported from Montana. “They have impressed both Matt and I with their unity. They have taken hikes as a group of ten. Usually, there’s a group of three or four [students] who do one thing, while the others do something else, but not this group.”
The students will remain in Montana for the rest of the week, providing a helping hand at the school. The Academy community thanks these men for their hard work and dedication to serving the less fortunate!
