Singles Serving Orphans

Singles Serving Orphans is a unique new outreach bringing singles together with some of our continent's neediest kids.

We are building a new school for the Casa De Elizabeth orphanage and teaching Bible studies and English and sharing love and joy with the kids even as they do the same for us. The poverty of living as American singles without children in our lives is a great poverty of its own. Our long term goal is for singles and orphans to be part of each other's lives. Our trips include a vocation (married and consecrated) formation retreat for the missionaries.

Mission starts and ends in Tucson, AZ at the beautiful and peaceful Catholic Redemptist Renewal Center. Daily Mass, Walking Rosary, Morning and Evening prayer as a group.

Then, we travel to the Casa De Elizabeth orphanage 2 1/2 hours south of Tucson. You will have a chance to meet other Catholic single adults from across the USA who share the same zeal to help the orphan children and grow in their faith.

Be prepared for a heartwarming adventure -- time interacting with the children; working on construction projects (for those skilled); doing crafts with children; helping in the kitchen; and having fun and sharing experiences with other Catholic single adults. We are also inviting some married couples to come which will enrich our experience. You will remember this experience and grow these relationships for a life-time.

Total fundraising goal per person is: $750.00 (We will provide fundraising resources that will make it easy to meet and exceed this goal.) This includes all expenses and a generous donation to the orphanage. This does not include the transportation to and from Tucson, AZ.

Free time, social activities, spiritual growth opportunites.
