Mission Trips

Helias Mission Trip Mission Statement:

  1. To provide opportunities for participants to live as disciples of Christ through service. 
  2. To foster the spiritual growth of each participant through the sacraments, Catholic faith sharing and prayer. 
  3. To promote the mission and charism of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and La Salle Christian brothers through direct service to the poor. 
  4. To build a sense of dedication and loyalty to Helias Catholic High School through involvement. 
  5. To lead students to a deeper relationship with Christ through a positive learning experience outside of the traditional classroom.
  6. To develop camaraderie, respect, and friendships among students and staff.
  7. To promote a lifetime of service.

Helias Catholic High School provides several opportunities each year for students to participate in a Mission Trip experience.  Experiences will be developed both in the local area as well as away from the Jefferson City. 

Students desiring to participate in Mission Trips need to complete an application form for the service opportunity.  Participation in a Mission Trip is a privilege and not an entitlement and students selected to do so are expected to represent Helias Catholic High School in a positive manner.


Dear young people, always be missionaries of the Gospel, every day and in every place.
