LETTER TO PARENTS BELOW!

Dear Parents and Youth,

 

We are looking forward to the possibility of your participation in our 2018 summer mission trip to Chimbote, Peru. It is my sincere prayer that God will guide you as you prayerfully consider this opportunity to serve God and the people of Chimbote. We believe that mission trips can change lives. Mission trips are valuable ways for each of us to live out our faith, to walk in another’s shoes, meet the needs of people, to be changed; and most importantly, grow closer to God.

 

In 2018, we will be heading to a “Friends of Chimbote” camp in Chimbote, Peru in June.  Click here for their HANDBOOK that details FAQ’s. The total family cost of this year’s mission trip per child will be $4,300. We will travel by plane and bus. You will have an opportunity to make a difference in your life; the lives of other youth you will work with; and the lives of the people you will serve.

 While in Chimbote, Peru we will be offered a number of different opportunities to serve:

                      

Beyond service we will be immersed in the local community of Chimbote.  All attendees will need to show a passion for serving others, growing in community and engaging those in need.

 

All teens interested in attending this mission must complete and submit the following application no later than October 15, 2017. Submission of this application does not guarantee your participation. Limited spots are available on international missions. Teens with mission experience (local or international), who have displayed a high level of integrity, maturity and commitment to our youth program and our community at St. John Neumann Catholic Church will be given priority.

                                    

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Sincerely,
