DR Adult and Youth Mission Teams are forming NOW for 2014!

Both teams will work in the beautiful mountains of central Dominican Republic. The Diocesan Camp near Jarabacoa will be the base of our ministry.

Join adults and youth from across our Diocese who will continue to build companion relationships with our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic!!

The Adult DR Mission is March 10-17, 2014.   The deadline for registering is March 3. A wonderful core group led by Rev. Karen Watson wishes to welcome you for an experience that will change your life. The camp, church and school are part of a compound that provides unlimited opportunities to serve our Lord and the mountain community. Contact Rev. Karen today at 402-517-1326.

The Youth Mission will be June 23-30, 2014. Sr. High Youth entering their Junior Year of High School through summer following graduation from High School (ages 16-18) are eligible to participate.

The expected cost is $1500. A $100 non-refundable deposit will hold your reservation as space is limited, and quickly filling.

Fundraising will be left to the youth and their home parish. Very limited scholarship assistance may be available.

Fundraising ideas may be found at: http://youthoutreach.episcopalne.org/fundraiser-ideas.html
