College Age Mission Trip to Ukraine 2009!
With the blessing of our Hierarchs, we are pleased to announce the dates for the College Age Mission Trip to Ukraine 2009. In an effort to allow as many students with differing schedules to participate, we will now alternate the dates of the trip between May/June and July/August. The 2009 trip will take place July 29 - August 16th which includes a training day in South Bound Brook, NJ.
This ministry aids the orphanages and orphans that our Church has sponsored in Znamyanka, Zaluchya and Puhachiv. The children at these orphanages are special needs and are believed to be products of the Chornobyl nuclear disaster of 1986. You can learn more about the trip at this link http://www.uocofusa.org/news_080627_2.html
The cost for the trip is $2200 plus transportation to and from South Bound Brook, NJ and personal expenses. The deadline for applications is January 1, 2009 - however, we encourage you to apply ASAP. IF you are interested in the trip, you should begin passport processing immediately in the event you are chosen for the team.
Applicants are not guaranteed a spot on the team until notified of their acceptance.
