  • Opportunity to host international students: Three Catholic high schoolers need host families for the upcoming school year: Emsi (age 16) from Germany,  Jan (a boy, age 17) from Germany and Claudia (age 15) from Spain.  All three of these students are notable for their interest and involvement in their Catholic faith. They will attend the local public high school nearest to their host family or school of choice, if desired. Students just need a bed, three meals a day and a loving family to call their own. Couples and families with any age children are welcome to apply. Please contact Karen Joseph at 616-822-0398 or karenjoseph44@gmail.com for more information.
