Get ready for an adventure. Recent participants report that there are many needs in Jamaica. People need adequate housing, kids need help in school and others just need someone to care. This is your chance to make a difference.
May 19 - 27, 2013
Join a group of volunteers and assist the Divine Word Missionaries in southeast Jamaica in their day-to-day ministries. Activities include:
• Building a house
• Painting the church
• Bible Study with youth
• Other day-to-day activities
Divine Word Missionaries staff seven churches in Jamaica. Three are in the civil parish of St. Thomas and four are in the greater Portmore area in and around the city of Kingston. This mission experience will be centered at Holy Rosary and St. Theresa Parishes in Portmore/Kingston.
Divine Word Missionaries participate in a great diversity of ministries with the poor and marginalized, including the youth and elderly. Our missionary priests and brothers invite you to work alongside them in their ministries to serve those in need in Jamaica—to get off the sidelines and no longer be a spectator, but be an active minister of God’s love.
