Annual Trip to Dandora, Nairobi, Kenya: June 2024

Join us in Dandora, Nairobi, for a journey in faith as we reconnect, recommit and reengage with our sisters and brothers of Holy Cross Parish, Dandora.


For 19 years, travelers from St. Monica have journeyed to Dandora to support the needs of the people of Holy Cross Parish. In return, the people of Dandora give us the gift of renewed faith and fervor as we witness firsthand their love of our Lord and commitment to the faith community. Experience the impact of this partnership, St. Monica’s and Holy Cross Parish have with each other. Celebrate the 20th trip with us in 2024.


As a traveler, you will help to: distribute food at Veronika’s Place, visit Brother Andre hospital, meet the students of St. James School, talk to the students, teachers, and faculty, play soccer (or watch!) with the youth of the Parish, celebrate Mass together, sing with the amazing choir, and dance your way through Mass with the Dancers for Christ. This is an unforgettable, life-changing experience.


The trip departs Los Angeles on Saturday, June 15 (arrive Nairobi June 16).  The trip provides an option for a 3-day guided safari at Masa Mara to see the beauty and wonder of Kenya.  Or you may choose to return home on Tuesday June 25. 


The trip includes 9 nights in the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi, full American breakfasts daily, all transfers, three lunches, and 2 dinners. A limited number of single rooms and additional nights are available for those arriving earlier or departing later. For more information or to express your interest, email .
