Missionary Work in India
In addition to WYD 2008, we took a group of about 15 youth to India for 3 weeks to live with the poor and do missionary work. It was the first experience of missionary work for many, and it was an amazing, eye-opening experience! They came back with a new on life, and fervor for Christ!
Nicaragua Mission Trip
In the Summer of 2009 we took a group of about 10 youth to Nicaragua for several weeks. The goal of the trip was to do missionary work in the form of helping the poor and evangelizing the people of Nicaragua. It was an amazing and eye-opening experience which paved the way for other mission trips and pilgrimages for the Laredo Newman Club.
Missionary Work in Ethiopia
In the summer of 2011, we took a gropu of about 15 youth to Ethiopia for one month to do missionary work. The men worked with adults to serve the poor, and the women worked in an orphanage. It was an incredibly intense experience that gave them a hunger to serve, and to live for Christ! They left Ethiopia and immediately traveled to Spain, where they joined with others from our Group for World Youth Day 2011.
World Youth Day 2011
In the summer of 2011, we took a group of about 70 youth on a three week pilgrimage to Europe for World Youth Day. We travelled through Europe visiting Lourdes, Fatima and much of Spain. We ended
the trip in Madrid for WYD. It was the first time visiting another country for many, and they took the opportunity to meet others from across the globe and unite with Christ!
