Love Begins Here

Love Begins Here provides youth in our Diocese with an opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ in a life-changing way through week long, local Mission Trips where they live in Catholic community and continue His work on earth. Our parish has been bringing teens for the past 3 summers, and it’s always a highlight of the year for them and the adults who join them.

Please mark the following dates on your calendar for your teens!

High School Mission Trip - Current 9th - 12th Graders: HS2, June 18-23rd - Monroe

Middle School Mission Trip - Current 6th - 8th Graders: MS3, July 5-8, 2017 - Portage

While you’re saving those dates for your teens, I’d love it if you thought about keeping one of those weeks open in your schedule, too. Adults who serve as lead missionaries usually love to experience just as much as the teens do. We will need 2-3 adults to help out with each of those trips.

Throughout the next couple of months, the Middle and High School teens will be hearing more about Love Begins Here in their religious education classes, at their small groups, and during youth ministry events. Along with publicity, we will have registration materials available for your families in person and via e-mail.

If for some reason those dates don't work out to go with our parish group, there are several other weeks available that teens may sign up to go as Lost Sheep. (If a group of 4 or more sign up to go on another week, we ask that a parent go as a Lead Missionary)

In the meantime, watch Love Begins Here’s Facebook and Instagram for fun updates throughout the winter, including the release of the 2017 Promo Video this week!
