Hello all! My name is Morgan McClaren, and I am a first year Communication Science and Disorders student from Niceville, FL. Throughout high school, I have been very active in my faith and I am thankful that St. Augustine has offered me the chance to continue to grow through the various ministries offered here. From my very first day at University of Florida, this church and student center has welcomed me and offered me much needed spiritual support. This year I have been given the opportunity to go on a missions trip to Kentucky over spring break with Christian Appalachian Project. I will be working alongside other Catholic Gators to serve the in impoverished areas of rural Kentucky. I believe that this truly a special experience to grow in my faith and in my community, and I am certain that I am being called to go.
However, I cannot make this mission trip possible without financial and spiritual support. The trip costs $435, which covers our travel expenses, room and board, ground transportation, and an offering to the groups who serve the poor year-round in that region. More importantly, I ask that you pray for the team and I as we embark on this journey. I can assure you that you will be praying for you as well! Below, you may submit your financial gift and/or your prayer requests. Any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless!
