High School Mission Trip
The High School Student Mission Trip is a ministry of the UkrainianOrthodox Church of the USA. We hope to bring aid and comfort tothose in need through out our country. It is easy to turn a blindeye to those reaching out a hand for help in our local communities. By our actions, we hope to show the face of Christ to these people in need and all we come in contact with and by doing so reaffirm the Holy Orthodox Faith in an Orthodox Service Community. We pray that by offering daily prayer services, as well as our love and works, that we will bring not only ourselves but all involved closer to Christ our God.
