Come join us on this year's Mission Trip to the
Hogar Immanuel Home in the Dominican Republic!
Since 2002, the Mustard Seed Guild ministry at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City has led fundraising activities throughout the year and sponsored mission team trips to support the homes of Mustard Seed Communities (MSC), and specifically the Hogar Belen Homes in Nicaragua. All the children living in these homes have been abandoned and/or are disabled.
August Mission Trips: Each year in August, parish volunteers travel to Nicaragua for a week to bring needed supplies donated by our parish community throughout the year, help with construction projects, and spend time with the children living at the Managua and Diriamba sites.
**Due to the political and civil unrest and violence in Nicaragua, which escalated in 2018, Mustard Seed Guild was unable to travel there in August 2018, and until further notice, mission teams are no longer able to travel there.**
Mission Trip 2019: This year, Mustard Seed Guild is planning on sponsoring a trip to the Hogar Immanual Home in the Dominican Republic. Mustard Seed Communities’ home in Dominican Republic, Hogar Immanuel, is home to over thirty children and young adults with disabilities. We hope you can join us! The deadline to submit your commitment check to join the trip is April 2, 2019.
