Mission Trips are a vital component of our ministry with High School students. Each summer we plan one or two mission trips to help our youth take their faith to the next level, put it into practice, and spread the Good News about Jesus Christ!
2017 Mission Trip – Oklahoma City – June 17-24
Our mission trip will be to Oklahoma City with the organization Catholic Mission Trips, June 17-24, traveling via coach bus shared with the Church of St. Katharine Drexel. Youth in grades 9-12 are invited to participate.
While in Oklahoma City, youth will provide disaster relief, build homes, interact with elderly, children, and those affected by natural disasters and poverty. In the evening, youth will engage in prayer, partake in discussion, and go to Mass and other services provided by Catholic Mission Trips Inc.
Later in the summer, youth partaking in the Red Lake mission trip will work directly with St. Mary’s Mission, interacting with and educating children of the mission, preparing the mission for the upcoming school year, serving elders of the Red Lake nation, and building relationships with a Nation that eagerly returns the favor.
A bake sale hosted by St. Stephen’s Youth Ministries will be held following the 5:00 p.m., 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Masses April 8/9. Proceeds from the sale go to the summer 2017 mission trips to Oklahoma City and Red Lake Indian Reservation.
You can help make this sale a success by bringing your baked goods to the table in the Gathering Space and hallway before Masses April 8/9. Please label your items and have them packaged to sell. We will price items. Package in zip-loc bags, on sturdy paper plates securely wrapped with saran wrap or in disposable plastic containers. Packages of 6-12 are suggested.
Remember, the more you bake, the more successful the sale will be. Thank you in advance for your support.
