Catholic Heart Work Camp Mission Trip - This year’s destination:  NASHVILLE, TN (June 23-28, 2019)

Every year our AfterMass!Youth Group takes a trip to Catholic Heart Work Camp in the summer usually in June.  In 2019, by popular vote, we are headed to NASHVILLE, TN from June 23 to June 28, 2019.  The Catholic Heart Work Camp has a two-fold mission: To share the love of Jesus and serve the neglected, brokenhearted and marginalized in any way needed.  The Catholic Heart Work Camp mission is to revitalize communities and beautify homes for the elderly, disabled and those who cannot afford needed repairs.  Our goal is to inspire participants to serve in their local communities. The second part is to empower participants to live as disciples of Christ through serving others and to foster the spiritual growth of each participant through the sacraments, Catholic faith sharing and prayer.  Those attending the camp will also attend the 5:30 p.m. Mass on the previous Saturday evening of the trip at which a special blessing will be given to all our campers after which we will pack the cars for the following morning.   Registration for the trip is now closed.  If you’d like to go next year, contact Mr. Van via email to sign up, to ask any questions about our 2020 CHWC MISSION TRIP or if  you just want to get involved in youth ministry!!
