On January 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck just 16 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. The earthquake leveled the beautiful country, and left more than 1.5 million people homeless, 316,000 dead and devastation across the land.

Life Teen (a Catholic youth ministry organization) sent multiple mission trips to the country to aid in the rebuilding efforts, and one fact quickly became clear: the people of Haiti, especially the teens, were hungry for Jesus Christ.

No Catholic Youth Ministry existed in Haiti, but after an earnest appeal from the Bishop of Haiti, the St. John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization was founded in Madian, Haiti.

This summer (June 20-27, 2019), St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church will be sending 10 missionaries (teens and adults) to this mission base for the first time ever. If you would like to apply for this mission please see the buttons below.
