“We felt that young people’s passion for helping people wasn’t being well-channeled. They would raise money to buy blankets or something and send them down to a crisis center, but it was an unsophisticated approach,” Jesuit Father Rick Ryscavage told Catholic News Service in a telephone interview. Father Ryscavage is director of Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life, where JUHAN held its third biennial conference June 12-15, bringing together faculty, staff, students and humanitarian workers from Catholic Relief Services, Save the Children and other agencies.
