We want to thank all those who gave of themselves to help us to have an amazing experience in Detroit, Michigan on our mission trip this year. We had a total of 22 people go with us: 16 teens and 6 chaperones! Because of your generosity of prayers and financial help we were able to help others in need and grow in our faith! We were able to put faith into action.

Thank you all so much for your support and kindness. We could not have done it without you!!

Some quotes from the week:

"The past week in Detroit, Michigan was an extraordinary experience. It was my first time on a mission trip and I could not have wished for a better one to go on. I understood that people have difference needs. Everyone needs help and that God has called us to help them. It may not be in the same way, but as long as we answer that call and serve others, than we can help everyone live a better life."

Mission trip is an eye opening trip that I am very grateful I got to experience and will experience again next year. I will highly recommend others to join us for our trip next year because this trip can change your life in multiple ways. It will change the way you see life for the better. It will make you seehow lucky we all are to be living th life we are."



On Sunday, May 6, 2018, several young people from Vicariate V were recognized by Bishop Andrew Wypych for their efforts in Youth Ministry. Among those present from the combined St. George and St. Julie teens were Krystian Albrecht, Matt Jung, Jill Lesniak, Tim Moriarty, and Jane Sharp. Not pictured is Darryl Farrow. We congratulate these young people and encourage all of our teens to be witnesses of our faith always.
