Due to the ever-evolving pandemic, we have decided to stay local for both of our middle and high school mission trips this summer. Though many students look forward to traveling across the country, staying local will allow us to have more control over the environment to ensure safe protocols and allows us more flexibility to adapt as needed - so we are less likely to need to cancel! Additionally, this will save our parish and families a significant amount of money and eliminates the need for fundraising in a time when money is tight for many.
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.
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 a Catholic parish or school within our Archdiocese, sleeping in classrooms.
