Jamaica 2018 Recap

Our students will soon be heading on a mission trip to Mustard Seed Communities in Jamaica during their April Vacation from April 18th through the 25th. They will live and work in the community there with our mission team from Cardinal Spellman High School. Our goal is to serve the residents by sharing our love and companionship. Students will be working with children and adults with mental and physical disabilities who have been abandoned. Our group will share our faith and love with these children while also completing work projects to improve the places where they live, learn and grow. Since many of the residents at Mustard Seed Communities will never get the chance to see the world, we will bring the world to them.

The work will be impactful, yet challenging, and our goals are both worthy and ambitious. We cannot succeed without the prayers and financial support of our family and friends! Sponsorships are greatly appreciated. Your gift will not only allow our students to have this life-changing experience but will also directly support the residents of Mustard Seed Communities. The funds we are raising will cover the costs of transportation, time in Jamaica, and towards the care of the residents.

God bless, and thank you very much on behalf of our entire Spellman team and all the residents of Mustard Seed Communities.

About Mustard Seed Communities

Founded in 1978, Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) cares for over 600 children throughout Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe. MSC's mission is to uplift and care for the world's most vulnerable populations including children with disabilities and children affected by HIV/AIDS who have been abandoned, teenage mothers and urban families living in severe poverty. MSC aims to improve the economic, social and spiritual conditions in all of the communities that we serve.

With over 900 mission volunteers traveling annually, the mission program is a cornerstone of our organization. Mission volunteers bring faith and love to the children we serve. With their help and the generosity of our many supporters, MSC is able to fulfill our mission of caring for the most vulnerable and ensure that no child is ever abandoned twice.

All international travel has been suspended at Cardinal Spellman due to the Coronavirus. A number of options for a trip at a later date are being considered at this time. We ask that you check back here after May 5th with an update on the trip. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Deramo, Director of Campus Ministry.
