​The History of our Mission Trips

In 1998, St. Edna Youth Ministry paired with the organization Catholic Heart Work Camp ( to offer a service experience for the teens of our Parish.  Since then this summer trip has become an important annual event in our Youth Ministry.  From our start, with 12 teens and 2 adults, we have grown to 50 teens and 10 adults for this summer's camp.  In all St. Edna Parish has had an estimated 525 campers and 100 adults being Stewards of our Faith, working to help people maintain their dignity, and their homes.  

What do we do at Camp?  We join people from other Catholic Parishes (usually 300 people at a Camp) and paint, plant, weed, sort, clean, serve, and do repairs in homes, shelters, daycare centers, playgrounds, Churches, outreach centers, and anywhere else we are sent.  (Local social service agencies pre-select our clients.)  

Where is Camp next year?  We will be chose our camp in August of 2016, but needed to wait until registation opened on Sept. 15, 2016. We will be attending the camp called "Twin Cities" which means to cities of  Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota.
