“Life grows by being given away.” (Pope Francis)
This summer we have 32 teens heading to Houston, TX for a mission trip to help rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. Our teens have signed up in order to put their faith into action by living the mission of the Church and seeking to encounter God in those they serve. While these trips are life-changing experiences, they come at a considerable cost. The cost for the transportation to and from Houston alone surpasses $12,000.
Support our Teens by Helping to Defer their Transportation Costs
Every $5 moves the bus a mile. The total distance from Hartland to Houston 1,200 miles. Help us to Move the Bus, so our parish teens can encounter God and help those in need!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why Coach Buses vs Mini-Vans?
Coach buses provide a safer mode of transportation for our teens. While the cost of renting minivans is cheaper, our insurance company limits the number of miles our volunteers can drive a day, adding lodging costs. Coach buses provide professional drivers that allow us to travel through the night and safely arrive at our destinations.
