Catholic Heart Work Camp Mission Trip - IT’S HERE!!  WE’RE HEADED TO FREMONT, NEBRASKA !!!

WE ARE GOING to FREMONT, NEBRASKA on JUNE 24-29, 2018!!  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.  We are again traveling with the youth group from Queen of the Rosary!!  We will first be attending a special send off Mass at 5:30 on Saturday June 23 prior to the trip.  All campers are expected to wear their new 2018 t-shirts!  Then we will be packing up the cars after Mass.  On Sunday morning June 24, all campers must be at the parish parking lot by no later than 4:45 a.m.  We will be leaving for Fremont at 5:00 a.m. SHARP!  While registration for this year’s trip is now closed, please contact Mr. Van to let him know if you want to go on next year’s trip!  Don’t miss out on all the fun!!!  Contact Mr. Van via email to ask any questions about the CHWC MISSION TRIP or if  you simply want to get involved in youth ministry!!
