This year, the Our Lady of Peace mission trip will be heading to Champaign, IL during the week of July 6-13, traveling by coach bus. We will team up with other Catholic churches and through the Catholic Heart WorkCamp organization will be assigned to work and serve various groups who need extra help. Youth and chaperones will have an opportunity to make a difference in there lifes; the lives of other youth and chaperones they will work with; and the lives of the people they will serve.
While in Champaign, IL, youth and chaperones will be offered a number of different opportunities to serve:
painting and housecleaning
yard work and minor home repairs
helping at daycare centers for low income families by assisting with the children’s programs
working at homeless shelters or helping at food distribution centers.
Even though this week will be filled with hard work and serving others, there will be a lot of fun to be had as well. Each evening there are activities, games and worship organized by the Catholic Heart WorkCamp staff. Our week concludes with a free day organized by Our Lady of Peace.
