Youth Leadership Academy Traveling to El Salvador this Week

Four St. Paul's teens (Nellie Fagan, Danny Leavey, Mia McCue, and Meg Merlino) left on Saturday on a week long mission trip to El Salvador as part of The Youth Leadership Academy (YLA), a program for rising 9th and 10th graders in the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.  Please hold them in your prayers this week as they journey around El Salvador on this mission trip focused around faith formation and developing a richer understanding of God in a new context.  

If you want to see what they are up to, visit their blog where they are making daily posts, quotes and pictures:
