Youth ReCreation

Youth reaching for hand of statue of JesusReCreation binds our community together. Through diocesan, convocational, and intergenerational events we become more aware of our call to be one Church, one people united and made whole through faith.

Youth prepare for summer mission trips

Cathedral youth volunteer on a trip to New York in 2013

Mission trips are one of the most impactful opportunities for a young person to take. They enable us to practice our calling as Christians, to go out in the world proclaiming the name of Jesus and to love our neighbors. The memories will last a lifetime along with the lessons learned from the experience. This year, the Cathedral youth have three mission trips.

Fifth Grade

The Fifth-Grade Mission Trip will be held in Houston from June 15–17. Current fifth graders and high-school leaders will work with the homeless and with nonprofit organizations around Houston. Get to know your hometown in a completely new way! Finish the mission trip with an adventure to Schlitterbahn in Galveston. The cost is $199.

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree, which is our annual fundraising opportunity to help financially support students in their mission, will be April 27 and May 11, 18 and 25 in the cloister. This allows us to support youth who would otherwise not be able to go due to monetary constraints. We need volunteers to help at the Giving Tree. Contact Jeremy Bradley at 713-217-1349.

Remember, friends are always welcome to come along on these trips and scholarships are available for those needing assistance.
