Frontiers of Justice, Travelogue

A Lifetime of Solidarity

On the sixth day of the Frontiers of Justice visit, the group visited the Notre Dame Minor Seminary/High School in Navrongo, Ghana. This entry was written by Morgan Daniels.

The day marked our first full day in Ghana but it felt like a lifetime of solidarity. In the morning and early afternoon we visited Notre Dame Seminary/Secondary School, where we experienced a typical school day at a Catholic school. From our observations of classes to attendance of a morning mass to eating lunch with the students to conducting a lesson on Catholic social teaching, we experienced the common bonds among Catholic teachers and students. Even though we came from various schools in the U.S. we left feeling like we were already part of the Notre Dame community.

These feelings continued through the evening as our group members were dinner guests at 5 different local families. Although we had contrasting experiences, we all agreed that we felt accepted and welcomed. Indeed we were truly humbled by the hospitality of the Ghanaian families, who cooked and cleaned all day for strangers coming from the U.S. At this time when the U.S. government seems to be losing friends across the world our delegation was building new relationships with there gracious families. After these experiences this day, I truly hope that we can do enough to honor the respect and hospitality of the Ghanaian people when we return to the U.S.
