Story image 1_0


Detroit, MI June 24-30


This summer, the SFX Service Trip will be to Detroit, MI through Young Neighbors in Action. YNIA is run through the Center for Ministry Development. Go here to see what you can expect from YNIA and here to see how YNIA works.


Dates: Sun AM June 24 - Sat PM June 30. Exact departure and return times TBD.

Where: We will work in Detroit and stay in Allen Park at St. Francis Cabrini High School.

Cost: The total starting cost is $525 for teens and adult leaders. This covers all meals, transportation, lodging, program supplies, YNIA t-shirt and water bottle, worksite supplies, program staff, administrative expenses, and supplemental insurance. There will be group fundraising to help lower this cost.

Who: Teens who will be sophomores, juniors, or seniors in high school or freshmen in college in the fall of 2018 and adult volunteer leaders! We have space for 37 teens and 8 adults.

Pre-trip meetings: There will be 2 pre-trip meetings. Sunday April 8 and Sunday May 6 from 4-5:30pm. Attendance at these meetings is crucial and expected.


Fill out and turn in the application to sign up! Applications can also be found in the rectory. To actually reserve your space, a deposit of $175 is requested.
