One of the traditional Legion of Christ “territories” for
mission trips is Nicaragua, and the third annual mission to
this country is planned for August 20-26, 2014.
Barton LC has been helping to organize the mission trip,
along with Fr Joshua West, LC, who is stationed in
the San Jose, California area.
“For the past two years
that we have held this mission trip, it has been
a life changing experience for all of the high-school boys
and girls who have attended, and also for me,” said
The retreat is offered for young men, and a
separate retreat for young women, high-school age and above. Mothers
and fathers are also welcome to attend.
According to the
mission trip promotional flyer, Nicaragua is “one of the
safest, yet poorest countries in Central America.” Mission participants will
work on building projects to provide shelter to those in
need, and to help bring hope to local residents.
to attend is $300 plus airfare. The fee includes meals,
transportation while in Nicaragua and lodging. The registration deadline is
January 31, 2014. To register, click here.
