By Larkin Vangsness, Cathedral Class of 2020:
There are many aspects of Cathedral that I enjoy; the athletics, academics, and activities. But something that really sticks out to me is the access it gives the students to the world.
Through Cathedral, I was able to go to Guatemala in the Summer of 2018. Guatemala taught me so many things about culture, life, people, and myself.
While we were there, we were able to attend mass and sight see, but most importantly, we worked. We built stoves and latrines in villages outside of San Lucas Toliman. The families we worked with live in homes with one or two beds, dirt floors, and no electricity. Even though they didn’t have much, they were so happy and welcoming. I’ve never seen a group of people work so hard.
Three languages, two countries, but all human, and that was the best part of the trip. I would have never been able to experience this trip without Cathedral. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities Cathedral has given me.
