On Sunday, May 22, 2011, a tornado ripped through north Minneapolis. The Visitation Monastery and St. Jane House were fortunate to be left unscathed. However, many homes were destroyed and lives were uprooted by the magnitude of this storm.

In the wake of this tragic natural disaster, six young women from Visitation School in Mendota Heights, MN, arrived for their Apostolic Service Projects. This year, the senior girls are present for a new level of urban immersion, while practicing Salesian Spirituality,  as they lend a hand to the tornado response teams.

I had an opportunity to travel through the northside community on Tuesday, May 24, and photograph the terrain, as well as these young women in action. Our Photo Gallery page includes these images in two new albums documenting the devastation to the landscape of north Minneapolis,  as well as the Visitation coeds preparing meals for the police officers working from our 4th precinct.
