“What is Mission Home? I’ve found that over the years whenever I am asked to describe it, it isn’t easy. Once a week a group of us meet up at OLG and then head out into the community to do various kinds of service, but there is more to it than that.
Yes, we do the ‘normal’ stuff of packaging food, cleaning and organizing various places, and helping watch children…. but we also go to the Cathedral of Saint Paul to learn about our faith. We spend a day learning what it means to be homeless.
We spend an afternoon just sitting and talking with the Minneapolis community. We learn about what it means to be an immigrant in this country and more.
Like any mission trip, you walk away with a deeper understanding of the community and for that community to be your HOME is huge. Even better, we also build a community at Mission Home. We spend hours with people who, like you, are focused on making the world a better place, and you become a different kind of friend. Mission Home is something you can come to and always feel welcome because we are all there for the same, reason the same goal.” - Hailey
