SUMMER MISSION TRIP

for high school age youth and older (current 8th graders included). We would like to send a group from our parish to Morganton, N.C. June 14- 20. We will need adult chaperones and some fundraising and your commitment SOON. Deposits of $85 per person will hold our spots for this trip. Total cost is $330 per person for food/lodging. Catholic Heart Workcamp (Heartworkcamp.com ) along with Catholic youth ministers and teens, have formed this ministry across the country and beyond. 13,000 strong this summer, in over 50 different cities, parish youth groups and schools have joined together to serve as Christ modeled. As bold Catholics we embrace this challenge to put ourselves aside to serve and restore homes and hearts, feed the hungry, lift the spirits of children, give hope to the disabled, and provide help through partnerships with social agencies.

Each day will be spent either renewing homes by doing such things as painting, housecleaning, yard work, and minor home repairs (experienced trouble-shooters will visit the sites to check on workmanship and provide help when needed); or, helping at day care centers for low-income families by assisting with the children’s programs, working at homeless shelters, or helping at centers that distribute food to the needy.
