This is an article that Matt Schnitzler wrote about his experience of the high school mission trip in the Dominican Republic. St Joseph’s parish ran it in their bulletin as a two part installment over two weeks.  The parish was very supportive of Mark Dumbrique and Matt in terms of encouragement, prayers, and financial support for these boys.
