Preparing for Your Mission Journey

One of Glenmary Home Missioners' goals is to call young people into mission and to raise awareness of U.S. mission needs. To prepare them for service, a group of Catholic school teachers and religious educators developed Educate and Inspire, a collection of helpful hints and reflections to ready students for their mission trip. Included in the collection is

Preparing for Your Mission Trip Journey, a 50-page practical and spiritual guide that helps to enhance high school mission trips and service experiences for the students as well as the chaperones
• Five points for students to reflect on before the trip
• Reflection questions for after the trip
• Adaptable prayer services
• 10 Scripture passages with corresponding journaling pages

This journal would be a great way to prepare your group for their trip to the Glenmary Volunteers on Joppa Mountain or Toppa Joppa!
