ReCreation 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.
The Cathedral is reestablishing its short-term international missions by teaming up with the Diocese of Costa Rica for a trip July 5–12, 2015. Fifteen high-school students and 12 adults will join Bishop Hectór Monterroso Gonzalez in Costa Rica for a multi-generational mission trip that will also serve as the summer’s high-school mission trip.
At the last diocesan council, the Diocese of Costa Rica and the Diocese of Texas formally developed a companion relationship. The Diocese of Costa Rica is planting churches, opening whole-child learning and wellness centers in impoverished communities, expanding an HIV/AIDS women’s co-op, partnering with coffee producers, and much more. This is a perfect opportunity for the Cathedral to plug into this developing relationship and to assist our companion diocese.
An informational session will be held on Sunday, December 14, from 12–1 p.m. in the Ballard Youth Center. We will discuss the work we will be doing while on the trip, requirements, application process, and cost. For additional information, you may also contact Minister for Youth and Young Adults Jeremy Bradley at 713-217-1349.
