In July of 2010 we began our Youth Ministry Mission Trips with our first trip to Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota. We spent a week scraping and painting houses, playing with kids, and learning from community members. It was an unforgettable enriching experience!
In 2011 we went to Dayton, Ohio with Catholic Heart WorkCamp. The eight young women from St. Leonard and two adult chaperones, spent the week at different service sites around the city. Activities ranged from working on a farm, to painting houses, to taking senior citizens on trips, to hosting a summer camp for kids!
In July of 2012 we traveled to St. Louis, Missouri! It was one hot week in St. Louis while we were there, but St. Leonard teens did their very best to make sure that they left their mark on the city!
If you are a high school student who is interested in participating in a service trip, consider joining youth ministry!
