Please help support our teen parishioners who are going on
the Mustard Seed Mission to Jamaica this summer!
Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) is an international Catholic nonprofit dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations throughout the developing world. MSC began in 1978 as a home for a handful of children with disabilities who had been abandoned to the streets of Jamaica. Today, MSC provides loving and lifelong care to over 600 children and adults with disabilities, children affected by HIV/AIDS, and young mothers in crisis across Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Zimbabwe, and Malawi.
Our mission week will be spent at an MSC community called Jacob’s Ladder, located just outside Moneague, Jamaica. Jacob’s Ladder provides shelter, health care, and community to 95 adult residents with varying degrees of developmental disabilities. While at Jacob’s Ladder, we will participate in small work projects, have time for group prayer, reflection, and sharing, and most of all we will spend time getting to know the residents.
