Trip Mission – St. John the Compassionate Mission is real world experience of God’s command to love your neighbor as yourself. Real Break Toronto participants will travel to the Lived Theology School and St. John the Compassionate Mission in Ontario, Canada to experience a life of serving others.
This trip will provide a unique experience of serving Christ through the fulfillment of the command of God to love one’s neighbor as one’s self. As Christ asked in the parable, “Who is my neighbor?” the Real Break Toronto team will quickly discover the answer as they encounter Christ in the men and women who frequent The Saint John the Compassionate Mission, who are in need in many different ways: physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
This trip is a hands-on experience that will challenge each person to focus on his and her relationship with Christ and others; and, each will have the opportunity to discover the depths of his and her spirituality. Christ reminds us in the parable of the Sheep and Goats on Judgment Sunday how we are to serve others as if each person in need was our Lord Himself. Participants will be engaged with Christ as they serve others who are in need of experiencing the love of Christ through the love of neighbor.
The registrants will be engaged in the community at St. John the Compassionate Mission by involvement in the programs for the homeless, the marginalized, and families at St John’s. It will participate in the morning and night Winter Program by helping to prepare and serve meals, as well as sharing meals and talking with members of the community at St. Johns. The Team will also take part in the regular liturgical services that are the heart and foundation of the life of this Orthodox mission.
