Each summer, St. Thomas middle school students embark on a week-long mission trip experience. The week is packed with service, learning, prayer, and fun.
2022 Week of Hope: June 19-24
Location: Kenosha, Wisconsin
During the week, we worked at the Racine Urban Garden Network. Formed in 2009, the Racine Urban Garden Network is a network of community gardens for the purpose of allowing families to grow fresh produce in areas of Racine where the supply of those foods is scarce. Surplus food that is grown in donated to local food pantries. We spent the week weeding, planting, and watering gardens. As we did that, we were able to reflect on the weeds which grow in our own lives and the impact of seeds of faith. Thank you so much for your prayer support. We felt blessed to be going in the name of St. Thomas.
Beginning in January 2023, planning will start for the 2023 middle school mission trip opportunity. Information about the mission trip opportunity will be communicated through the parish website, the weekend bulletin, and in religious education classes.
