High School Mission Trips
High School Youth Mission Trips give our teens a special opportunity to grow in faith and to live out the social teachings of the church. To "go in peace to live and serve the Lord." Our trips are very successful, as can be evidenced by the tremendous growth and interest over the years.
Making these trips a reality has almost become a year-round effort. In addition to giving up a week of their summer to participate in the trip itself, the students also donate their time and talent to help with the planning process, volunteer at various Parish functions as a way to say “Thank You” for their support, and to participate in fundraising efforts to help defray the costs related to the trips.
Mission trips provide a fun and tremendously rewarding experience for our high school youth and represent an important step in their individual faith journeys. They come to see the face of Christ in those they serve and in those they serve with. It is exciting and reassuring to have so many young people willing to give witness to their faith and to share their time and talents.
