MARY CATHERINE LEGREID (Founder)
I dream of being a Foreign Service Agent in the US Embassy in Poland. I long to serve my country, the United States of America, as well as the people of Poland as a US diplomat. I want to begin my life in public service this summer as I learn intensive Polish, serve in the ranks of Habitat for Humanity-Poland, and invite Polish natives back to church.
To be an effective diplomat, it is paramount to be able to communicate. But the Polish language is the second most difficult in the world! I have already begun my studies, and it truly is a challenging endeavor! Please pray for me as I learn intensive, full immersion Polish!
I also want to serve the Polish people and help them with some of their most critical needs. Winters in Poland are harsh, and 60% of all residences in Poland have no insulation. I will be working with Habitat for Humanity to help them accomplish this goal of insulating and providing more adequate heating options for the Polish people. I will also be inviting folks back to church. Poland is still 80% Catholic, but only 35% of those folks go to church on Sunday. Sometimes, all we need is a smiling face to remind us of what we are missing😊
