Catholic Youth Renovation Project: June 23-29
Sponsored by St. Paul Catholic Church in Mission

This year, the Office of Youth Ministry is partnering with St. Paul Catholic Church in Mission to invite parish youth ministries to participate in this great service project.  This unique week-long high school service experience gives young people the opportunity to live out our Catholic teachings on social justice. Youth work in teams to help construct/reconstruct homes for low-income families.  It is a moving and impactful experience to see our youth empowered to share their gifts and talents with others in ways they had never imagined.  

The cost is $150 per youth.  Parishes are encouraged to develop a team which consists of 7 youth, 1 young adult, 1 female adult leader and 1 male adult leader.  

Youth Serve: July 13-14

YouthServe is an overnight middle school service project/retreat.  This experience is intended to raise awareness of Catholic Social Teaching in an age-appropriate method. There is a cost of $55 per student and only accepting up to 40. First come, first serve basis.
