Love Begins Here

Love Begins Here

Diocese of Madison’s Local, Life-changing Mission Trips

Love Begins Here (LBH) launched on June 21, 2009. That summer, we had 56 missionaries take to the streets of the Madison Diocese. After thirteen years of growth and guidance from the Holy Spirit, over 600 missionaries served on LBH trips in 2021.

To this date, Love Begins Here has given over 130,000 hours of service to those in need - materially and spiritually - in the Madison Diocese.
