Proceeds from Mission Week ’17 will be donated to:

Jesuit Missions in Belize (Peter Claver Parish)

“The parish’s priority goals in implementing this mission include: to build lively Small Christian Communities, aware of and contributing to the larger whole of the parish; to empower its people and increase their self-reliance; to increase trust, cooperation and shared decision-making between the church leadership and the people; and to counter the growth of the evangelical churches in the Toledo District by increasing its own missioning efforts.

De Smet has a long standing relationship with the Missions in Belize. For years, students have spent a week of their lives – in either the Spring or the Summer – working alongside natives from Belize. A co-member (with De Smet Jesuit) of the Central and Southren Province of the Society of Jesus, Belize and the Jesuit Missions there have always been supremely grateful for all the help that our mission collections and Mission Week provides.

St. Matthew the Apostle Parish

“Inspired by the graces of that Sunday morning celebration with its lively Gospel music and sincere human warmth, we go to work rebuilding this church and this neighborhood.”

De Smet Jesuit and St. Matthew the Apostle’s relationship dates back decades. Their youth have attended Christmas on Campus for over 15 years; our students have raised $ and donated canned goods, candy and coats through various drives. Our students serve there during the Ascent retreat and often during Senior projects as well.
