College Summer Mission Trip 2019


This mission trip is designed specifically for college students  to travel to a new place and encounter Christ in the poor. We work with Food for the Poor, Inc., to plan this trip and connect it to our parish’s Operation Starfish ministry.

Who: Students graduating high school in 2019 (must be 18+) through recent college grads are eligible to apply.

When: July 8-12, 2019

Where: Our priority for this trip is to travel to Haiti to visit Nativity’s Villages. In recent months, the risk of not being able to safely travel to Haiti has increased, so we’re also planning an alternate trip location. Our alternate trip, should it be deemed necessary not to go to Haiti, is to travel to Kingston, Jamaica, with the same opportunities to encounter the poor and be the hands and feet of Christ. We’d be extending the mission of Operation Starfish in Jamaica and you’d get to be part of that new beginning! Our trip would remain July 8-12, 2019 and all travel logistics would be handled by Food for the Poor, Inc.

What: In either Haiti or Jamaica, our itinerary would include…

  • Visiting schools and orphanages and leading activities for the children
  • Visiting a home for disabled children and the elderly
  • Visiting a community in need- a “before” village that hasn’t received help yet
  • Bless a new home and give a family the keys to their new life
