High School Mission Trip

St. Mary’s 2020 Mission Trip has been canceled. But we are already planning for 2021!

St. Mary’s Mission Trip – July 18-24, 2021 to David, Kentucky

So you’re interested in a summer service trip? This is a great opportunity to share your gifts with others and to see another part of the country. All participants will have the opportunity to work on home repair projects through the St. Vicent Mission in David, Kentucky. This has been a very rewarding experience for those who have gone in the past, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to go as a parish!

Beliving that all persons have a God-ordained right to the basic needs of life in order to meet their full potential.
