Mission Trips

We work with FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, who coordinates mission trips, not only for college students, but for young adults who are out of college.

Young Adult Mission Trips

FOCUS - the Fellowship of Catholic University Students - is offering mission trips for post-college aged folks! This year, they will be offering two mission trips for young adults between the ages of 23-35.

 

The goal of these missions is to allow young adults to encounter Christ in the poorest of the poor, in authentic friendship with other young adults, and in prayer and the sacraments. Details for each link below. Application to apply at the bottom of the page.

 

Mexico City

April 11-15th, cost $850 (does not include flight too and from Mexico City, does include all on the ground expenses and travel insurance).

This trip is a long weekend for those who have limited PTO. The mission on the ground will involve outreach to street children, and there will be daily visits to Our Lady of Guadalupe.

 

Peru

June 14-24th, cost $1,100 (does not include flight too and from Lima, does include all on the ground expenses and travel insurance).

This trip is scheduled post-school year so that young adults serving as teachers can come, as well as any other young adults with enough time off or who have recently finished school themselves. The mission on the ground will involve building stairways and roads in the shanty towns of Lima. This work allows these communities to receive electricity and water from the government. We work with the Sodalites, and serve side by side with Peruvians while at work. If we have enough Spanish speakers, we will also do basic catechesis with the children. There will also be pilgrimage to visit St. Rose of Lima and St. Martin DePorres!
