Summer 2019 - Omaha, Nebraska
June 22nd - 29th, 2019

We will be heading to Omaha, Nebraska for a unique week of service learning. Our week will help us respond to Pope Francis’ call for a church that discovers Christ by loving and responding to the needs of the poor. Working with other youth from around the country, we’ll build community while we focus on the church’s Social Teaching.
Sign-up is on a first-come basis for Parish members and past participants. This year’s team has room for a total of 18; thirteen youth and five adults. Your spot is reserved when we receive your form and your down payment of $50…. unfortunately no spots can be reserved without form and down payment. The full cost for the trip is approximately $375 out of pocket. Registration forms are available at the St. Matthew parish office, in the Resource Center in the gathering space, and can be printed out here: Participant Registration Form

Participants should be aware that there will be fundraising events, as well as group meetings to prepare they will be expected to participate in as part of meeting the group costs for the trip. Youth participants must have completed at least their freshman year in high school. Adult chaperones are required to be at least 21 years old, and must undergo a background check and Virtus training. More information on the YNIA experience can be found on the YNIA website.

What is Y.N.I.A?
Over the past 18 years or so St. Matthew has taken a group of high school students on a service or mission trip for a week during the summer. June 2018 we will be heading to Chicago for a unique week of service learning. Our week will help us respond to Pope Francis’ call for a church that discovers Christ by loving and responding to the needs of the poor. Working with other youth from around the country, we’ll build community while we focus on the church’s Social Teaching.
