Mission Trips

Totino-Grace High School's mission trip program encompasses the core values of the Lasallian mission while providing students with unique opportunities to learn about different cultures and poverty issues locally and internationally. Partnering with Lasallian communities, schools, and ministries allows us to do this most effectively. Our students have truly enjoyed these learning opportunities with the Christian Brothers, Lasallian Volunteers and other various ministries. More than 100 students have had the opportunity to travel with Totino-Grace this year, living out the Gospel as Jesus calls us to do.


Urban Experience: 

The Urban Experience mission trip is a two day, fast paced, intense learning experience right here in Minneapolis. Students learn about homelessness and poverty in the Twin Cities by walking a day in the life of someone experiencing homelessness. Throughout the day, they will visit with and explore different resource centers (such as Catholic Charities and Salvation Army) in the area. Students also have the ability to serve those who are suffering from homelessness by providing a meal and volunteering time at a local food bank.
