Mission Trip Send-Off

With Fr. Ron Hicks, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Chicago, members of the Solidarity Bridge community came together to bless missioners who will travel to Bolivia in the coming year. Friends, missioners, and staff gathered for this celebratory Mass and dinner at St. Nicholas Church in Evanston on September 9, preceded by a daylong orientation for new and returning missioners. 

Last year, 60 Solidarity Bridge missioners traveled to Bolivia on seven mission trips, serving nearly 800 patients with surgery and care and collaborating closely with our Bolivian partners. That work continues as a new season of mission trips begins.
