Sister Parish Mission Trip Kick-Off Meeting

February 9, 2015

Sister Parish Mission Trip Kick-Off Meeting – for our 13th “Summer Camp” at the Hogar Teresa Toda Girls’ Home in the Dominican Republic – Monday, February 9, 7:00-9:00 pm.

This trip is for women over 18 and mother-daughter pairs for daughters over 15. We have openings from July 5 through July 12, and July 11 through July 19 for travelers interested in sharing a spiritual experience with young women and girls from another country.

The format is similar to our own Vacation Bible School, with skits, music, crafts, 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 industries). If you are interested in traveling with us this summer or helping out from Minnesota, please contact Ann McGuire at 952-914-9123 or e-mail annnmcguire@gmail.com to RSVP to our kick-off meeting. Ann and past travelers will be there to give an overview and answer questions.
