Students participating include Bridget Blair, Jared Boehmer, Tyren Brockamp, Laikyn Janney,Taylor Jansen, Emily Keane, Arianna Kefgen, Taylor Koolstra, Carson Leiting, Ali Miller, Andrew Namanny, Abbey Schaefer and Bryce Sweeney. The group is being led by Fr. Jerome Cosgrove, Heelan Chaplain and various adult volunteer chaperones. The students will be using this webpage to post their pics and experiences while on the trip. Check back during the week to follow their progress. Please keep all in your prayers they venture out on this special mission.
