Guatemalan Mission Trip
July, 29 – August 6, 2017

St. Matthew is partnering with Tree 4 Hope, a non-profit organization committed to providing a bright future of long-term hope for children, elders, and their families in Guatemala and around the world, focusing on education, health, and mental wellness. Their projects are designed to meet basic needs, empower local communities, build relationships, promote cultural exchange, and inspire youth.  The approach has been refined over the years to build long-term relationships not only with these institutions but also with the people they serve.

Our team will travel to Guatemala and work with either Hogar Miguel Magone, Hogar Maria Auxiliadora, the Elder Center, or La Limonada. No matter what your skills and talents, they can be applied to our service work. Everyone has something to offer and there is no doubt that the mission trip has something to offer you.

The organ has 14,581 pipes and 245 stops.  Enjoy this brief video. Then come hear the magnificent sounds in person. St. Matthew is truly blessed.
