New club seeks to empower students to help change lives


Ryan Kirby

Mission club, a new club based upon service and helping others, was founded this year by Prep senior Charlie Raimondi and Villa senior Faith Rebich. The mission statement of the club is “Empowering young students to help change lives,” which greatly reflects and encompasses everything they are trying to accomplish in Mission Club. 

“Really we just want to help make a place for students to help other people and a place where maybe we can take on some of the financial responsibilities and help out with kids who really want to go on mission trips,” said Charlie. 

Mission Club is an exciting new development for Prep and Villa,and a great way for both student bodies to come together and help affect other lives in a positive way.

“I think it’ll be really helpful for people who maybe can’t afford to go on these trips,” Charlie said. “But even more than that, I think it will be fun and a really good learning experience for all involved to get a little closer with others and with God. If you haven’t done it already you [should] sign up. You won’t regret it.”

As a member of Mission Club myself, I agree with everything Charlie said. It’s a great way to reach out in the community through service work and fundraising for missions in other countries. If you haven’t looked into it, or maybe are on the edge, email Faith or Charlie. Mission Club would love to have you.
