Mission Ministry

Fr. Dan’s encouraged parishioners to participate in mission activity: “Live in the Larger World.”

In 2004-2005, parishioner Elizabeth Larson spent the year in Carmelite Missions in Sicuani, Peru; seven others went for a two week trip to join her, including Father Dan O’Neill, Father Eugene Bettinger, Mary Ellen Schoonmaker,Elena Betts, Dr. Raul Caceres, Sal D’Angelo and Bob Paladino.) Elizabeth described the experience as “blessed,” adding that “the cost was minimal [but] the abundant payment was, and still is, beyond comprehension.”

The outreach continued when Dr. Raul and Cathy Ceceres, Fr. O’Malley and Sal D’Angelo went on a medical mission trip to Bolivia in 2006, developing a Burn Center.
