- Nothing gives me more pleasure than to support an initiative like Step Up to Serve which brings together young people, the future of our communities, with social action, the fabric of our society.
- We are obliged, as a religious imperative, to take responsibility not only for ourselves and our own lives but for the lives of others – our families, our communities and the society in which we live. Through engaging young people in the altruistic service of society, we bring about social change in a most powerful way. We better society, and through stepping up to serve, we ourselves are bettered. I offer this new and exciting initiative every blessing and wish it every success.
