As a 13-year-old student, Fr. Edwin felt a strong sense of belonging as he stood in the main hallway of St. Benedict’s; and it later became his permanent home. He listened to the community after the school closed down due to racial tension, and reopened its doors the next year. The school runs from the bottom up, as students manage the day-to-day operations. The brotherhood gives young men a true second chance when they make mistakes and provides an outlet for students who do not think that they have a voice.
