Our oldest daughter will be going on the mission trip for the first time this summer. She is so excited and so are we. They will be serving the community in Pittsburg, PA for a week. This is one of the largest parish mission trips in our nation with 140 students and adults strong. Their patron saint is St. Theresa of Calcutta, who tells us all to "give God permission" to work through us. This is what is on the mission trip t-shirts all the mission trip attendees received yesterday at the commissioning Mass.
Please say a prayer for them as they make preparations and travel this Saturday to PA to work/pray/and play together as a parish family. They will be keeping a blog for us to keep up with them and all their activities.
