About the Trip
Join other high school students from the Episcopal Diocese of Newark on a local Mission Trip, working right here in New Jersey! We will work together at Apostle’s House, a shelter for families founded by several Episcopal Churches, in Newark. Our days will be spent creating art projects and other experiences for the children of Apostle’s House, and helping with simple construction.
We will also learn about Newark, the ways it has changed through the years and some of its current challenges. As Christians, we know that the work we do isn’t for our own sake, but for the sake of Jesus Christ. Our Mission Trip group will live together in intentional Christian Community. At the end of every workday we’ll stay on the Close at the General Theological Seminary in Chelsea. There, we will participate in Daily Office and reflection on our work. We will also take time to visit other churches in New York City. Of course, there will be plenty of additional time for fun in Manhattan. The teens will attend cultural events and experiences, try new foods, enjoy fellowship and have a blast!
