In fidelity to the Gospel call to love others as Christ loves us, the goal of St. Mary’s Mission Trips is to share in and learn from the lived experience of our brothers and sisters from all over the world including the USA. By sharing in the faith, work and culture of those we meet during our mission trip, this becomes a life-changing moment in one’s spiritual, educational and personal formation. This experience challenges participants to integrate the values of the Gospel and the social teachings of the Church into their lives and to encourage change in the lives of those around them.
