The youth at Trinity Episcopal Church in Asheville are headed to Cuba this summer on a mission of presence, fellowship, solidarity, and faith with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Fifteen youth and five adults will be going to work with an Anglican parish in Cardenas, Cuba from July 25 to August 1, and you can invest in the trip to make it happen!
 
For the eight months, Trinity Youth have been hard at work selling “stock” in this mission to family and friends outside of Trinity. But now we want to open up the investment to our Trinity family, too.
 
Each stock certificate is $25, but investors can purchase as much stock as they like. In return for your investment, stockholders will be invited to a free dinner at Trinity when the youth return. During the dinner, youth will share their insights and experiences from the trip, from what it was like to plan and host Vacation Bible School in Spanish with other Cuban Christian teenagers to visiting local parish members.
 
We are thrilled by this unique and timely opportunity for our students as they participate in history-in-the-making with the recent easing of travel restrictions to Cuba. By going at this time, they will be a part of an important moment for the Anglican Communion and The Episcopal Church as well. The cross-cultural relationships that will be formed during this experience are profound part of the Church’s work to restore relationships with our fellow Anglicans in Cuba, who voted just last year to return to their pre-1959 affiliation with The Episcopal Church.
 
This mission is a faithful expression of what it means to stand with our brothers and sisters in Cuba who have expressed a sense of being forgotten and ignored. It is also represents a chance to learn from their own experiences and expressions of Christian faith in Cuban culture.

You may purchase your stock from any youth going on the mission trip, from Debbie, at the church office or Online.

To Cuba with Love

Send simple, needed items to our Cuban brothers and sisters

Trinity is sending a team of youth to Cuba this summer, and you can join with us. Because of the isolated economic conditions on the island, many items are not easy to come by. So we'll be collecting these items until July 16. Drop off your donations in the basket under the youth bulletin board in the hallway on the way to Tuton Hall.
