Love Begins Here Middle School Mission Trip


 St Jude the Apostle Love Begins Here 2024

Love Begins Here Middle School Mission
June 24-27, 2024

Love Begins Here (LBH) is a middle school mission trip experience that facilitates an encounter Jesus Christ through a week of local service lived in a joyful, Catholic community. Inspired by the life and witness of St. (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta, LBH invites teens to serve those in need in their own homes and communities, thus continuing Christ's work on earth.

Middle School youth from St. Jude the Apostle Parish will help out at a food pantry, paint a fence, or plant a garden during the day. Follow that up with ice cream, swimming, prayer, and a ton of fun while making friends with teens from all over the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. LBH teen Missionaries from St. Jude the Apostle Parish will serve those in need in Waukesha County.

This year's mission will be open to the first 20 middle school youth currently in grades 6-8 who complete the application below (addidtional youth will be placed on a wait list).

We will travel by personal transportation provided by Adult Missionaries and properly insured.

We will enjoy the hospitality of St. Anthony on the Lake Parish in Pewaukee. Meals and programming will take place at this same site.

The cost of a missionary to participate in this opprutunity is $175.00. Each missionary is required to make a $50 deposit to secure their spot. The balance of the trip will be covered by the missionaries participation in fundraising activities.

It is reccomended that you make sure you have an updated tetanus booster if due.

Once the application is complete, permission slips and medical forms will be emailed to parents. 

A packing list will be provided for all participants at the first preparation session.

And so here I am talking with you – I want you to find the poor here, right in your own home first.
And begin love there. Be that good news to your own people.
And find out about your next-door neighbour – do you know who they are?

- St. Teresa of Calcutta, Nobel Prize Lecture, 1979
