Housing in India will be on site at the seminary. They have about 10 beds. They are narrow, low to the ground, hard wooden frames with a thin, firm mattress (more like a cot mat). If you wish, you can bring your own sleeping mat/air mattress. Each gender will have their own room (Men/Women), and a shared bathroom.
We will be eating most of our meals at the seminary. The diet consists of curry (vegetables most days, chicken occasionally) white rice, potatoes or noodles, eggs, and fruit/veggies. We will have regular access to clean, drinkable water.
This is first and foremost, a service trip. The aim of this trip is to love and serve the people in the homes in which we will be staying. We will live the life that the seminarians live, which is a life of joyful service, mission and mindful meditation on our faith. Although there are many wonderful sites to see in India, and we will endeavor to see as many as possible, serving the seminarians, teaching them English and building their guest house will be our main objectives.
The weather is HOT and relatively humid. It won’t be as rainy, since it’s early in the summer, but rain showers (of large velocity, since it’s the beginning of monsoon) are a possibility. Expect it to rain heavily once a day.
$800 per person (Airfare not included.)
A minimum of 10 participants is needed to run the mission trip. There are currently 7 spaces still available. Fill out your application today!
Hello! My name is Martine Dollack. I am a wife, a mother of four, a teacher, a farmer and a passionate Catholic. I was born and raised in the Alsace region of France and moved to Canada after my marriage. We are currently living in Salmon Arm, British Columbia where we attend the church of St Joseph. I am passionate about my Catholic faith and have been involved in many ministries within my parish. I am also a proud member of the Catholic Women’s League. No matter the endeavor, I always look forward to grow in faith and service to others. I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to join the team of CMT this summer as site coordinator. As I embark on this incredible journey, please pray for me, my family and our mission. God bless.
