2016 Teen Trip Dates Announced! July 6-13th 2016 Guatemala

Category : Back to FFK Home, Latest News, Register, Teen Trip

Click here for  2016 Mission Trip Application Form

February, 2016

Dear Teens and Parents,

 

NPH USA and Father Frank’s Kids are in the process of organizing its 10th annual summer mission trip for teens to Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos Guatemala. This trip allows these teens to respond to their call as disciples of Jesus Christ. Through baptism, we are all called into ministry, especially having a preferential option for the poor, homeless, sick, orphaned, widowed and imprisoned. This trip will enable our teens to enter into another culture and language, and more specifically, the lives of orphaned and abandoned children.

Teens will also have a greater understanding of poverty and cultural differences. It will especially help them distinguish between “needs” and “wants.” It is difficult in our country to make that distinction. The teens normally walk away with a greater appreciation for what they have and can see the difference they can make in the life of someone less fortunate.

Lastly, this trip provides an opportunity to live and work with the orphans and experience firsthand how Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos has changed their lives. From past experience, this trip has also changed the lives of the participants. This trip provides an opportunity for teens to witness the impact that their generosity makes in the life of others less fortunate. It models the importance of caring and sharing with one another, which is the epitome of stewardship

Father Frank’s Kids is taking up to 50 teens on this trip, and chaperones, which will take place this summer, Monday July 6th through Monday July 13th. Mrs. Donna Clancy will be coordinating the Father Frank’s Kids process.

The cost of this trip will be approximately $1,500.00, which includes airfare, ground transportation, room and board at the orphanage and admissions to all excursions. The attached form, along with a $900.00 non-refundable deposit needs to be returned by Tuesday, April 5, 2016.

 

 

The attached registration form and deposit needs to be sent to:

Donna Clancy

c/o Father Frank’s Kids

PO Box 934    Diablo CA 94528

 

It is mandatory that your teen have a valid U.S. passport to travel to Guatemala. Effective January 23, 2007, all persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport, not expiring before January 13, 2017. Please begin this process immediately if your teen does not have a passport.

Your teen’s passport, along with your teen’s final balance will be due the beginning of June. It is also recommended but not required to have a Hepatitis A inoculation. Please consult your physician for their advice.

If you’d like more information regarding our organization and/or our orphanages, please visit NPH USA at www.nphusa.org or www.fatherfrankskids.org or contact Donna Clancy at 925.785.1877 or clanusa@pacbell.net.

Sincerely,

Belinda Roda

2015 Fiesta Results-Thank You for Your Support!!

Category : Back to FFK Home, Fiesta, Latest News, Register, Teen Trip

Thank You for Making Fr. Frank’s Kids Fiesta & Auction a Huge Success!

 

We want to thank everyone who supported Father Frank’s Kids Fiesta and Auction in October. The event was a huge success thanks to the generosity of our parishioners.  The Fiesta and Auction raised $68,000! All of these funds will be used to assist the orphaned and abandoned children of the NPH orphanages.

We have committed much of the money raised for projects and needs of the various homes. These include:

  • $12,000.00 to provide 104 children with clothing and shoes for a year in the NPH home in Nicaragua.
  • $12,000.00 for the salary of a vocational teacher in the Guatemala home.
  • $12,000.00 to pay for the cost to house, nourish and educate 123 children in the NPH home in Honduras.
  • $12,000.00 to partially offset $52,000.00 of budget cuts due to fundraising shortfalls for the El Salvador home. The funds will pay for clothing, medical care and food.
  • $12,000 for three months of food for the children admitted to St. Damien Pediatric Hospital at the NPH home in Haiti.

Remaining funds will be used to pay for additional projects and for the cost of shipping containers of donated clothing and other goods to the homes.

Again, thank you for your generosity. You have made a difference in the lives of many children.

FFK’s 2015 Teen Trip to the Guatemala home will be July 6th -13th  2016. Contact Donna Clancy at clanusa@pacbell.net for more information.

2015 Fr. Franks Kids Teen Trip Forms

Category : Back to FFK Home, Latest News, Teen Trip

Dear Mission Trip Participants and Parents,

 

 

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE NOTICE

IT IS FULL OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

 

The mission trip to Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos Guatemala is just over 10  weeks away. As a reminder, our orientation meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 26th  from 6:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. in the Large Gym  at St. Isidore’s Church. Once again, this meeting is mandatory for your teen and at least one parent.

 

U.S. Immigration requires that all passengers have a valid passport. Your teen’s passport must be brought to the orientation. If you have not applied for his passport yet, you will need to expedite the procedure. Please check the expiration date and ensure that the passport does not expire within six months of our departure date. Further information regarding this new policy and/or how to apply for a passport can be found at http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html.

 

Attached with this email are the:

 

  • TRAVEL RELEASE OF LIABILTY-MINOR (**NOTARIZED) Travel Release of Liability Minor Child 2015
  • We will have 2 notary’s at the meeting-they are available after the orientation portion of the meeting (approx. 7:30-8:30) $ 20.00 per page
  • NPH INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES (PLEASE PRINT/READ/BRING TO THE MEETING- THERE WILL BE ONE COPY OF THIS FORM AT THE MEETING FOR ALL TO SIGN) NPH International Visitor Guidlines

 

 

The Release of Liability (minor) form must be signed by both custodial parents/guardians and notarized. If you have sole custody of your teen, a copy of the court decree must be provided. A copy of the front and back of your insurance card must also be attached to the Health and Medical Consent form. Please ensure that both parents have been notarized on the release of liability form prior to the orientation.

IF YOUR TEEN IS A LEGAL ADULT YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLETE OR NOTARIZE THIS DOCUMENT. IF YOU ARE OVER 18 PLEASE COMPLETE THE

 

 

The $600.00 fee for room, board, ground transportation and activities is due the evening of the orientation. In addition, your teen will need money to cover their meals at the airport, lunch at Lake Atitlan, snacks and souvenirs. I am recommending $125.00. The current exchange rate is approximately 7.6 quetzales to the dollar. We ask that you bring your teen’s spending money the evening of the orientation. We will exchange the money into quetzals and your teen will be able to draw against their account balance once a day. This will ensure that their money is safe and secure. Whatever they do not spend will be converted into dollars and returned at the end of our trip. Please make your check for $600.00 (plus whatever amount of spending money you would like for your teen) payable to Father Frank’s Kids.

 

Each teen is able to check one piece of luggage and have one carry-on. Please ensure that the suitcase and carry-on have identification tags. In addition, we will be transporting an additional box with supplies for the orphanage. We would like each teen to collect items from the supply list which is attached to bring down to the home. The shipping boxes will be provided at the orientation. The box can weigh no more than 50 pounds.

 

If you have any questions regarding the required paperwork and/or financial arrangements, please contact me at clanusa@pacbell.net or (925) 785-1877.

 

Best wishes!
