Love Begins Here

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

Love Begins Here (LBH) helps middle and high school teens encounter Jesus Christ through a week of local service lived in a joyful, Catholic community. Inspired by the life and witness of St. (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta, LBH invites teens to serve those in need in their own homes and communities, thus continuing Christ's work on earth.


Help out at a food pantry, paint a fence, or plant a garden during the day. Follow that up with ice cream, swimming, prayer, and a ton of fun while making friends with teens from all over the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

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.

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
