Youth will partner some of our parish ministries and other community ministries.

MISSION: MERCY
Open to Rising 10th Grade

Monday, July 27 – Friday, July 31, 2020

Registration opens January/February 2020

Following our Franciscan tradition of serving others, teens will have the opportunity to take part in daily service projects, have meaningful prayer experiences, and spend time growing in love lived in service. This week-long onsite overnight experience will allow teens to dive deeper in their faith by witnessing and working side by side with those who face daily challenges. Mission: Mercy participants will serve as camp counselors for Hispanic Children during the Pequeños Gigantes summer camp. Participants will be challenged on a daily basis, and through their experiences, will grown in compassion, patience and leadership abilities. Although extremely fulfilling and rewarding, Mission: Mercy is a week-long immersion experience that requires campers to be emotionally and spiritually mature. Campers must be ready for the physical demands of being away from home for the duration of the camp. Please note that camp will begin on Sunday at 5:00pm. 
Maximum number of campers: 15
Cost: Early registration: $160 before 4/10/19, $200 from 4/10/19 thru 5/11/19 – 2020 rates – TBD
