MISSION TRIP 2017
The Mission Trip is a week-long service experience that has been a tradition at St. Mary for many years. This year, we are traveling to Champaign, Illinois to serve our brothers and sisters with a program called Catholic Heart Work Camp.. Our work will include anything from painting and repairing houses, soup kitchens, Bible School, and neighborhood clean-up.
Why should I go?
Mission Trip is a truly life-changing experience that gives a new perspective and encourages a life of deeper love and service. If you come on Mission Trip, you will grow closer to our group and form a deeper sense of community, but you will also be able to give love to others through your service and learn from them. Mission Trip is something that must be experienced to fully understand!
What is Catholic Heart Workcamp?
Catholic Heart Work Camp is a national program that coordinates mission trips for high school students and young adults. The mission of this program is to share the love of Christ with the marginalized, neglected, and brokenhearted while at the same time fostering the Catholic faith in participants and inspiring them to live as deeper disciples of Christ. During our week of mission, we will serve our brothers and sisters, but we will also participate in the Sacraments, prayer, small group discussions, and fun activities.
