You are invited to join the Church of Saint Edward’s 18th annual mission trip. We have openings from July 4-12 and July 11-19 for travelers interested in sharing a spiritual experience with young women and girls from another country. The mission trip supports our Sister Community – the Teresa Toda Home, a home for girls in Azua, Dominican Republic – by hosting a two-week camp, or Campamento, each summer. Our camp theme is “Women of Faith”. We study bible stories, play music, make crafts, perform skits, and do 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 patience with kids, crafting and beading talents, or your professional experience. 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 from Minnesota. This trip is for women over 18 and mother-daughter pairs for daughters over 14.
Interested? Please e-mail Ann McGuire to RSVP to our kick-off meeting in Room 121.
