MIddle School Mission

June 21-24, 2022: Kewaskum, WI

 

St. Teresa of Calcutta, AKA - Mother Teresa, often taught that people didn't need to travel to Africa, South America, or even Calcutta to serve others, because "love begins at home." Every community has people in need, and we should start by serving there.

 

Inspired by Mother Teresa’s devotion to Christ and service to the poor, Love Begins Here provides teens with an opportunity to encounter Christ through service, prayer, and Catholic community within our own Archdiocese.

Who can go: This trip is open to any current 6-8th grade student. You can even bring friends from other parishes or school.

What we'll do: We'll spend our days serving people and organizations in need. This work may be done for the elderly, homeless, handicapped, or by working with community organizations. After working each day we’ll return to our home-base where we’ll have free-time, share a meal, play games, debrief, pray, and sleep each night.

Where we’ll stay: We’ll stay at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Kewaskum, WI, sleeping in classrooms.


Financial aid available.

Hey parents! Looking to share an incredible experience alongside your teen? Chaperone drivers are needed and go free! Chaperones will be responsible for leading a work crew of teens and driving their group to/from their worksites each day.

High School Mission

July 12-17, 2022: Chicago, IL

Why go on a mission trip? Here’s 5 Reasons:

  1. Get Away: From your phone, from selfies, from stress, from your comfort zone, and from the day-to-day.

  2. View the World Differently: Spending 6 days focused completely on the needs of others who are less fortunate than you, will definitely change your perspective.

  3. Meet Jesus: Mother Teresa often said that she could see Jesus most clearly in the people she served. “Once we take our eyes away from ourselves, from our own interests, from our own rights, privileges, ambitions – then they will become clear to see Jesus around us.” St. Teresa of Calcutta

  4. Make Friends: Working alongside people for a week will definitely bond you with new (and old) friends!

  5. Jesus Asks You To: Jesus specifically asks us to care for the poor, the hurting, and the forgotten. While you can do this in your neighborhood anytime (and you should!), there is something inspiring about challenging yourself to do this for an entire week.

Who can go: This trip is open to any current 8-12th grade student. You can even bring friends from other parishes or school!

What we'll do: We'll spend our days serving people and organizations in need. This work may be done for the elderly, homeless, handicapped, or by working with community organizations. After working each day we’ll return to our home-base where we’ll have free-time, share a meal, play games, debrief, pray, and sleep each night.

Where we’ll stay: We’ll stay at the Slovenian Catholic Center in Lemont, IL (25 miles from Chicago). This is a beautiful facility on the grounds of a monastery. Check out the pictures!
