Inspired by Mother Teresa's words "small things with great love," local adults and youth ministers started Mission Evansville to improve their community. The goal of Mission Evansville is three-fold:
1. To bring the love of Christ to the local community through concrete acts of service
2. To empower youth to meet the needs of their neighbors
3. To provide an affordable mission trip experience for area young people
All Corpus Christi and St. Philip parishioners should register under the group UNITE CYM (Sharon Shumate group leader).
