Mission to Cancun

Fathers and sons invited to join Fr. Peter Devereux and Fr. Joshua West on a mission to help those in need

Want to make a difference and see a beautiful part of the world at the same time?  High school-aged (14 and up) and college-aged young men and their fathers are invited to join Fr. Peter Devereux LC and Fr. Joshua West LC on a mission to help those in need on Isla Mujeres off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. (To see the brochure information, click here.)

From August 2 to August 8, 2013, the group will travel to the island that, though well-known for its beauty and attractive tourist locations, is still “gripped with poverty.”  Missionaries will assist the local pastor, Father Raul, with building projects to shelter residents in need who “otherwise may have lost hope,” said Fr. Peter.

The cost of the trip is $300, in addition to the estimated cost of $600 for airfare.  Meals and local transportation (by boat) will be provided.  Accommodations will be in classrooms at the local Sacred Heart Parish.

Those participating are encouraged to ask friends and family to donate toward the mission construction projects. “This is a perfect thing to ask family members for in lieu of a Graduation or Confirmation present,” suggested Fr. Peter. “You can also donate gently-used or new clothes and shoes for the people of this very poor country. They will appreciate your generosity.”

Donation checks should be payable to LC Pastoral Services with “Cancun Mission” in the memo line and mailed to 22825 San Juan Road, Cupertino, California, 95014.

To register for the mission, click here.  The registration deadline is June 30, 2013, and space is limited.  Questions?  Contact Fr Peter at pdevereux@legionaries.org or info@ourladyofsantaclara.org.
