For over 8 years middle school youth from St. Mary have been a part of the Catholic service learning experience known as Just5Days.   

Just5Days is a week-long mission experience of hands-on service work, engaging faith learning, meaningful prayer, community building, and summer fun. Just5Days was created especially for middle school youth and their adult leaders from Catholic parishes and schools to learn about their faith while participating in service work.

Extended service trips help youth to understand the impact that they can have on their community and help them to discover their own gifts and talents while building community with friends new and old. 






This summer our St. Mary Just5Days Team will travel to Mount Carmel Catholic High School in Chicago!  Middle school youth from St. Mary and Catholic parishes and schools across the Midwest will spend a week at this popular site serving, praying, learning and of course having a bunch of fun!  We invite your middle school child to join us for this fantastic experience.

Adult participants are also needed for this experience.
