Mission Trip

Guatemala – Our next trip will be January 2018

The Newman Parish sends students every two years to Guatemala to spend seven days helping with the San Lucas Mission Parish.  The Newman parish provides the funding for all room and board costs, so students are only asked to pay for travel fees.

2016 travel fees are $960 (travel insurance included). a $100 dollar deposit is required to reserve a spot on this year’s trip.

367The students spend time learning about the cultural, political and social realities within Guatemala, and participate in the mission’s many initiatives to bring healing, economic growth,  justice, and peace to the people of San Lucas.  This trip is also a wonderful opportunity to meet other students, see the beautiful landscapes of Guatemala, and develop a deeper sense of our global church that is bringing comfort and justice to a world in need of God’s love.  Learn more about the San Lucas Mission site at sanlucasmission.org. Please contact staff member Ryan Luedtke if you are interested in this year’s trip.386
