De La Salle Blackfeet School

Once again, we are sponsoring a mission trip to Browning, MT over April vacation to spend a week working at the De La Salle Blackfeet School.  Last year was our first mission trip there and we are excited to be offering it again.  Twelve students are going along with Ms. Foley of our theology department and Mr. Arnold of our math department.  Mr. Arnold spent 10 years living and working on an Indian reservation in Washington state and is beyond excited to be heading up this trip.

The founder of the school, Bro. Paul Ackerman, FSC, has been at Trinity the past two days meeting with students and talking about the school.  Bro. Paul worked at the school from 2001-2012 and he now travels to schools and parishes to speak about the school and to raise money for it.  97% of the school's budget comes from donations.  Yesterday Bro. Paul chatted with all the freshmen theology classes and today he is speaking to the sophomore theology classes.  Last night he met with the students going on the trip along with their parents.  He flies back to Chicago today after school.
