StJW 2019 Mission Trip
Serving the Poor in the Name of Jesus
Jesus Christ commanded us to care for those in distress for He said, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me.” (Matthew 25:40)
For two weeks, StJW Missionaries (Participants going on the Dominican Republic Mission 2019 from the Parish of St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church) will partner with the Samaritan Foundation to build sponsored homes for the poor in one of the Samaritan Foundation Villages in the Dominican Republic.
The week will also consist of visiting one of their local ministries (school, orphanage, hospital, etc.) and one of the ‘completed’ villages.
The goals of the Mission Trip is to
• Obey the Commandment of Christ to serve Him in the poorest of the poor.
• Raise awareness about the needs and challenges in the developing world.
• Underline our spiritual link with Christians in the developing world.
• Foster an ecumenical relationship with Christians of other denominations.
