Mission Trips

"Be the change you want to see in the world." - Ghandi

You can be this change through one of our many Tri-Parish mission trip opportunities!

Middle School
Youth in grades 6 - 8 have the opportunity to show what a difference they can make in Just 5 Days, a program designed just for them. These trips generally take place in the upper Midwest. Our group leaves on Monday morning and returns on Friday afternoon. Youth in this program have the chance to help with children's groups, the elderly, community projects, or wherever else we may be needed. These trips are offered every other year - even years. Adult chaperones needed.

High School
"I did not come to be served, but to serve." Mark 10:45
High school mission trips offer youth in grades 9 - college freshman the opportunity to travel farther, experience different cultures and work with youth from around the country. Whether painting a house, helping with Kids Club, or working in a soup kitchen, each trip is a unique and wonderful experience. These trips are offered every other year - odd years. Adult chaperones needed. 

We are partnering with Youth Works at the Cheyenne River Reservation  June 22 - 29, 2019 for this year's trip. Click here for more information and registration form.

Adult Trips
"You may not do great things, but you can do small things with great love." - St. Teresa of Calcutta
As of 2018 we are planning an adult mission trip to the Dominican Republic through Cross Catholic Outreach. This trip is offered every two years and is open to anyone age 20 and up. Working along with Cross Catholic and other partners, we give hope to those who may feel hopeless. On our first trip in 2018, we were able to provide four families with new homes, spread joy to one hundred children through the "Boxes of Joy" program and meet many new and wonderful people. 

Pre-registration is required for all trips. Fundraisers are held to help offset some of the cost.
