Haiti Teen Trip 2012
Sponsored by ZanmiSasye and Sacred Heart Parish
ZanmiSasye and Sacred Heart Parish are sponsoring the 2nd Teen Trip to Haiti this Summer. This is a great opportunity for Teens to experience Haiti and to share themselves and their talents with the teens of St Jean Baptiste, Sacred Heart’s twin Parish in Sassier, Haiti. If you know someone who might be interested, please pass this information along to them.
Teens! Are you interested in a Mission/Adventure trip that you will remember for the rest of your life? If you are, the Teen Trip to Haiti 2012 is for you. You will have the chance to experience a new culture, make new friends, and work side-by-side with Teens from Sassier to make a real impact.
In 2008, 16 Sacred Heart Teens journeyed to Sassier for 10 days and were transformed by their experiences. Several of them are planning an Alumni trip next Summer. Even though their languages weren’t the same, all the Teens (American and Haitian) found it easy to communicate-through music, sports, dance, prayer and laughter.

We will leave Chicago Saturday, July 28 and return Monday or Tuesday, August 6 or 7 (this is after the end of summer school at New Trier and Loyola). We will stay together in Sassier in the same accommodations as the 2008 trip.
The first Teen Trip Team meeting is Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 3 PM at Sacred Heart Parish in Winnetka, IL. For more information contact the Team Trip organizer, Deacon Gerry Keenan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-251-6626.
