So in light of our annual Life Teen Summer Staff and Friends mission trip to Mexico which is coming up January 3rd through the 11th, the question, “Are mission trips worth the risk?” has been coming up frequently. I have been praying about this question a lot lately and trying […]

I have come to learn that in the spiritual life there are plenty of ups and downs, highs and lows, peaks and valleys, crosses and resurrections call them what you want, but what I struggle with is why? Why can’t there just be peaks, why does there have to be […]
So I heard a homily this weekend from this awesome Deacon that comes up to camp frequently and in his homily he told this story. A priest was talking to a group of kids at his Catholic school and he posed the question to them, “Do you want to go […]
