Teens are the future...
Unfortunately like in many other cities in the country, inner city teens in Pittsburgh still lack the opportunities to progress and develop their true potential.
This is the reality where Dirty Vagabond Ministries is trying to make an impactful change, and that is the reason I have decided to help them in their mission. Partnering with St. Maria Goretti Parish, DVM is serving the Garfield/ Bloomfield neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. With the support of the Diocese and the compassion of the local Church, God is moving in a big way here.
Dirty Vagabond Ministries aims at raising up saints in a grassroots effort and incarnational model of ministry. All ministry that happens in Dirty Vagabond Ministries, happens in conversation, relationship, and recreation, as opposed to formal youth group functions. Though their goal is the same as any Catholic youth ministry program - raising saints, rooted in the sacramental life of the Church - their approach is different. An Important part of Dirty Vagabond Ministries is its community centers.
These centers, located in the heart of urban communities, are a place where catechesis happens, in the midst of holistic ministry focusing on the physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of the young people. The Dirty Vagabond youth workers live as missionaries, volunteering 3 to 5 years of their lives to be Christ among the people.
Running for Dirty Vagabond is not about wearing a tshirt or a pin to say I am supporting a cause. Running for Dirty Vagabond and raise funds while doing it, is a tangible effort to support what DVM does to change the lives of inner city teens by helping putting missionaries on the streets, getting kids to camps, retreats, and church, and mentoring/disciplining teens.
Mother Teresa once said "We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty." You can make a difference by supporting DMV effort.
