UPDATE:  We have now raised sufficient funds of the girls to go to BANICA!  Hurray!  Any additional donations to the end of July will now go to purchase of materials and others while they are on site in the Dominican Republic.  Any small contribution will help!  THANKS!

Mariana and Maia would like to go to the Catholic Mission in Banica, Dominican Republic this summer to help build homes for the needy residents of Banica.  

Bordering Haiti and the Dominican Republic is a rural Catholic Mission in Banica, serving approximately 10,000 impoverished families and residents in over 60 different communities. The Diocese of Arlington, VA and the Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana are in partnership to provide both spiritual and material needs for the residents and parishioners of Banica.  This Catholic Mission has been in existence and in the care of the Arlingotn Diocese since 1991.

The Youth Group at St. Veronica Catholic Church, in an effort to assist the missionaries already in Banica (many of whom are college students and graduates from the U.S.), has arranged to visit the Banica Mission in late July/early August with a group of 17 high school students from our parish and several adult chaperones.  Their main objective will be to help build foundations and paint homes for the residents in Banica.

The trip is expensive, and will cost the group nearly $17,000 to participate.  Airfare, food and lodging, transportation in country, etc. will all have to come out of this amount.  Mariana and Maia are both trying to raise funds to help defray the cost of this mission trip.  

You can help them and the residents served by the Mission by making a donation!  

No amount is too small.

Mariana and Maia, along with all the students who will be participating on this trip, will be keeping you in their thoughts and prayers.

God bless you in advance for your generosity and allowing Mariana and Maia to pariticpate in this worthy and noble cause.
