2015 Mission Trip to Accident, MD


Each year, typically during the third week in June, we send our youth and adult chaperones on a week-long work and spiritual journey with other youth from around the country.  Past programs have seen our youth attend work camps and programs in Phoenix, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; Staten Island, NY, and most recently in Accident, MD.  Projects have included rebuilding and repairing homes and schools, cleaning shelters and churches, and harvesting food.  Youth may begin attending the mission trip upon the completion of 8th grade.  Numerous fundraisers are held throughout the year to keep travel costs manageable and adult chaperones are always in demand.  For more information on the 2018 trip, please contact Gary Morello.
