Service Trip 2020


Looking for an adventure ...   
       Summer 2020 High School Mission Trip. Interested ???  

St. Joseph Parish is partnering with Vacations That Give to plan a service trip for high school students to take place in June 2020. This is an opportunity to experience first-hand what it means to serve our neighbor. Service trips not only bring much needed physical and emotional relief to those in need, but also lead those involved to grow in their faith by living out the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. 

Where are we going?  Houston, Texas. We will be doing clean-up and rebuilding work for communities in the Houston area still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey which struck in 2017.
When is it happening?  Currently the plan is to depart on Thursday June 25 and to return on Thursday, July 2nd. 
Who can go? 

Those entering, completing or still in high school as of June 2020. Parents are welcome to come as volunteers. We require two adults for every 5 to 6 students.  

How much will it cost?  We are hoping to keep the cost at around $500 per person, excluding airfare. That includes accommodations, meals, activities, and local ground transportation. Round trip airfare from Boston to Houston in June is approximately $350.  
How are the arrangements being made?  St. Joseph Parish is working with Vacations That Give, a ministry of the Sisters of St. Anne in Framingham. They have organized and conducted many trips for parishes and schools over the years. They will handle the travel, accommodations, meals, and activities. A staff member from VTG will lead the trip.
