At Home Mission Week
Sheboygan County At Home Mission Week is an opportunity for youth and adults of St. John Evangelist, Blessed Trinity, Sheboygan North and South Catholic Parishes, and St. John the Baptist to serve the local community in a mission trip-like setting. Not only is this an opportunity to help our literal neighbors and help improve our local community, but those involved with the service week are challenged to open their eyes to the needs around them and to understand how service work is another way of expressing their faith.

Annual Mission Trip: Catholic Heart Work Camp
During the annual Catholic Heart Work Camp Mission Trip, a group of youth from both parishes gathers together and heads off out into the world for a week of service, prayer, and fun. Short-term, travel mission trips offer an opportunity for youth to encounter injustice, God and themselves in new and unexpected ways. A change of scenery helps open our eyes to those on the margins we may ignore in our daily life. The integration of service, spirituality and socializing encourages participants to experience God in all things. Being removed from one's daily pressures and influences allows youth to open up to a part of themselves they may hide in their daily routine. And it is not just the youth who get a lot out of the experience - adult chaperones report having an equally entertaining and powerful experience.
Dates & Destination: July 9-15, 2017; St. Louis, Missouri
