2017 Mission Trip Kick-Off Meeting Monday, January 23, 7-9 PM

29 Dec

Join our mission trip this year. Support a social justice organization – the Teresa Toda Home, a home for very poor girls in Azua, Dominican Republic with a summer camp in July 2017. This trip, a Church of Saint Edward sister community relationship annual event, is for women over 18 and mother-daughter pairs for daughters over 15. We have openings from July 1 through July 9, and July 8 through July 16 for travelers interested in sharing a spiritual experience with young women and girls from another country. In a Vacation Bible School format, learn bible stories, play and dance to music, make crafts, perform skits, and other activities. We pray, exchange stories, share love, and spend time with the girls. Through the activities they learn English, enjoy crafts, and build self-esteem. Each trip is deeply touching and spiritual. Special gifts you may share are Spanish skills, crafting and beading talents, or your professional experience (esp. healthcare, tourism, retail, scientists, government, education, and other areas). If you want to follow the Pope’s lead on social justice, charity, adventure, spiritual experiences, fellowship, growth, and fun answer the call to travel with us this summer or help out from Minnesota. Look around this blog, starting on the About page and please contact me with questions or to RSVP.  Here are the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page from this year so far. Please share!!
