Junior High (rural youth in 7th-9th grades): June 4-7, St. Mary, West Point
High School (any youth in 10th-12th grades): June 11-16, St. Augustine, Winnebago
Chaperone Cost: There is no registration fee for adults. We simply ask that parish chaperones pay for gas to provide transportation during the week and prepare to spend approximately $20 on taking their car group out to get ice cream following service on one of the days. We suggest that parishes consider reimbursing their chaperones for these expenses.
More information on chaperone guidelines and expectations can be found in the parish leader guide found on the right side of this page.
Parish Groups: We highly encourage parishes to organize a group of youth to attend together. All parishes with 3 or more teens must provide an adult chaperone(s) to attend and transport your participants. Please check to make sure there is enough room in vehicles for everyone from your parish throughout their LBH experience.
The ratio on Love Begins Here is 1 adult for every 4 youth. (Groups with 5-8 students must provide 2 adult chaperones.) If the majority of your missionaries are male, we ask you to please provide a male chaperone. Please contact Jen Moser at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
