This year’s Pittsburgh Mission Trip was held on November 18 and 19, 2023. 54 OC Students and 10 chaperones stayed overnight at Oakland Catholic, an experience these students will never forget. They were broken into teams to divide and conquer the mission of serving the Pittsburgh community.
On Saturday, students enjoyed serving several local organizations, including Little Sisters of the Poor, The Nest, Propel, Second Harvest, and Light of Life Mission. One team made 2,976 Thanksgiving boxes that will be distributed to families in need on Thanksgiving Day.
Sunday morning, they enjoyed visiting nursing homes to paint the resident’s nails and playing fun games like bowling and a song circle. The weekend was full of fun, student bonding, and many opportunities to experience Christ’s love through prayer, adoration, confession, and Mass.
