YOUTH GROUP MISSION TRIPS
STM High School Youth Ministry offers mission trip opportunities through local, regional, and international trips focused on fellowship, faith development, and service. Typically we offer regional trips over spring break , and local and international trips during the summer. We serve locally in Denver, but have been all over the country and world, allowing students to learn about travel and culture in addition to service.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our mission trips are currently postponed, but we are offering other service opportunities and can’t wait to get back to serving the world on a bigger scale!
Inner City Denver - Local
Summer (July). Incoming 9th-12 grade.
A time for spiritual growth, community building, and joyful servanthood. Christ teaches us to serve one another, especially the poor. We will work at Fr. Woody’s Haven of Hope, Mullen Home (with the Little Sisters of the Poor), and Catholic Charities. This will be an eye-opening weekend – a chance to experience your hometown as you have never seen it before.
Mission Possible - Regional
Spring (select Spring Break). 9th-12 grade.
For a week in Shiprock, New Mexico on a Navajo reservation, you can grow in your faith while also serving the Navajo community. Explore the Shiprock pinnacle and the Four Corners Monument. On this trip, you will make lifelong memories and break out of your comfort zone. You won’t want to miss out on this one!
Alternative Summer Break (ASB) - International
Summer (late July-early August). Upperclassmen grade 11-12.
For two weeks during summer break, STM High School Youth journey outside the country to serve their global neighborhood and build a stronger relationship with Christ. The location for ASB is different every year, and we have traveled places such as Peru, Kenya, Nicaragua, Philippines, Jamaica, and more. This trip is only available to juniors and seniors. With tourist adventures as well as service projects, this is a perfect way to break out of your comfort zone. You will make friendships with your teammates and those you meet internationally that will last a lifetime! Adventures are waiting for you just around the corner—go out and experience them!
