Youth Mission Trip for Young Men and Women

Join us for an unforgettable mission trip to one of the Legionaries’ traditional mission territories; Nicaragua! This trip is ideal for high-school aged young men and women and their moms and dads too if interested. You will travel to one of the safest yet poorest countries in Central America. Not only will you help those who are in need, but you will also give hope to those who otherwise may have lost hope. We go to serve with activities such as working with the local children, fixing buildings, or painting projects. The Chaplain for the young men will be Father Joshua West, LC.

Back Again This Year– the youth mission will also include young women! The ladies will stay in Chinandega and work each day doing lighter jobs such as painting, cleaning and working with the children in the local orphanage. The Chaplain for the girls will be Father Peter Devereux, LC assisted by Lisa Lively. The chaperoned young men and women will come together several times during the mission.
