Love Begins Here

Local, Life-Changing Mission Trips for Middle and High School Youth

Love Begins Here (LBH) provides youth with an opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ in a life-changing way through week long, local mission trips where they live in Catholic community and continue His work on earth. LBH began in the Diocese of Madison in 2009 and will launch in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in 2021. Read below to partner with us in this great apostolate!

LBH is always a wonderful and refreshing week that helps me to refocus on what is important in my life and re-examine what truly makes me happy. I truly gain so much joy from serving others and seeing the impact I make on them.

About Love Begins Here

And so here I am talking with you – I want you to find the poor here, right in your own home first. And begin love there. Be that good news to your own people. And find out about your next-door neighbour – do you know who they are?

- St. Teresa of Calcutta, Nobel Prize Lecture, 1979
