St. Mary, Our Lady of the Snows

Mission Program

Appalachian Mission Program

Youth Ministry in conjunction with Christian Service have joined together to provide a mission program for students currently enrolled in grades 8 through 12.  This ministry immerses the participants into a different ‘way of life’ while at the same time creating a sensitivity and appreciation of other cultures.  The program is designed to help broaden the scope of community service.  It also provides the participants with an opportunity to engage in a ‘living’ experience of social context.  It supports organized efforts to give participants an opportunity to provide service, and work alongside individuals and families whose lives are impacted by poverty and/or social injustice.
