St Mary of the Visitation Parish Mission projects are projects dedicated
to influencing our world for Christ
St Mary of the Visitation Parish Mission projects are projects dedicated to influencing our world for Christ. We mobilize our community to grow in relationship with God through service
opportunities with our local, national, and international strategic partners.
We believe that Missions is all about relationships – connecting people in our community with those outside our church. Jesus
told us to be witnesses to the ends of the earth, starting with our own neighborhood.
At St Mary of the Visitation we do this by creating partnerships locally, nationally, and
internationally. We believe these relationship will become a way that God will use
to change the lives of others.
St Mary of the Visitation Parish Mission projects are undertaken
through a vision of strategic partnerships. We're not out to create new ministries but to partner with the works God is already blessing. We're aiming to focus strategically on a few excellent partnerships, not spread out our resources across many different efforts.
The emphasis for all St Mary of the Visitation Missions short-term trips is not on building things that might require special skills but on building relationships – everyone can participate! You’ll see each trip has a brief description
and all our trips involve a lot of relationship building activities. Our most
recent trip was our Mission Trip to Haiti from November 3-11, 2015. For 2016, a
young adult from the parish represented us during a 3 month exposure tour in
Haiti from May - July, 2016. Watch for
details soon on another international mission opportunity in Fall 2017.
