Parents of current 8th grade (and all current high school) students: The Diocese of Jefferson City Youth Ministry and Vocation Offices once again invite you to our second annual Mission Trip for those entering their freshman year of high school through those entering their sophomore year college. Destination? Glenmary Farm, Vanceburg, KY -- the Real Appalachia Mission Experience! First 28 who sign up get to go. Cost is $250 and is all inclusive (trip, meal, snacks and other incidentals) No need to bring money; the people we will be working with do not have money, so no need to show them that we do. As you are discerning if this is the mission trip for you, please realize we are in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains where we will encounter, live, and be with the poor. Hence the picture of Mother Theresa in the center of the flier. A great experience serving the Body of Christ awaits. Don't hesitate to contact the Vocation Office to sign up. Registration forms can be obtained by calling the Vocation Office at 573-635-9127 ext. 211 or by e-mailing the Vocation Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to helping you get registered to be on the mission trip. Lay Leader: Rick Vise from St. Robert Parish in St. Robert, MO. Parish Priest Chaplain, Father Jerry Kaimann, Pastor of St. Bonaventure in Marceline. Chaperones from youth ministries around the diocese. See flyer enclosed.
OPERATION RICE BOWL: In the small West African nation of Vurkina Faso, 80% of the population are farmers. Frequent droughts make it difficult to produce enough food for the entire year. Often, farmers can only grow enough to feed their families for seven months. The rest of the year is called “the hungry season”. This week, we pray for families in Burkina Faso and give to CRS Rice Bowl to help small-scale farmers.
Remember to return your Friday Folder on TUESDAY.
Have a great three day weekend everyone!
