2016 mission trip photoSummer Mission Trip Testimonials

Darian
My experience was amazing I am very glad that I was able to go to the mission trip. On the first work day, we trimmed trees. The people driving passed were thanking us and very thankful for our help. The rest of the week we went to spend time with kids who were struggling. They really appreciated our company and I'm glad they appreciated it. I didn't want to leave because of the kids. I believe my faith became stronger when we did church time, devotions, and the prayer meetings. In general I loved and I would be proud to do it again.

Joseph
Our trip to New Orleans was an amazing adventure.  What was best about the trip was traveling to a new place to help those in need. We helped children who aren't as lucky as I am to come from a loving family with plenty of support. I really enjoyed spending time with the kids and getting to know them. The trip was a faith filled wonderful experience and I can't wait to be a part of the next one! I really appreciate the parish for supporting us so that we were able to take this trip!

Jonas
My name is Jonas Manubay. I had a great time on the mission trip. I liked helping people that needed help and I pray that they have a good life. I also liked the French Quarter, Nashville TN, and the Civil Rights Memorial and Museum in Montgomery, Alabama.

Sophia
I thought it was a great experience helping the APEX Youth Center and meeting people who shared the same faith I did. It was really different down in New Orleans and the worship service we went to was quite a different worship style than what I was used to. I liked how it brought together people from around the country who all believed in the Catholic faith who would have probably not met each other if we all hadn’t had decided to go on the trip. I ended up getting some new friends, one I still have contact with today. It really strengthened my faith and made me see the world in a new perspective.
