WorkCamp 2021

What is Workcamp:  For one week you will become a part of a community of dozens of Catholic teenagers.  Through many discussions, delights, challenges, and reflections, you will gain new friendships; you will gain self-confidence in your faith; you will inspire others; you will be inspired.  Through your selfless service and hard work, you will make the poor and needy shed tears of gratitude and amazement. You yourself will shed tears from God’s Grace and God’s Love.   You will find peace; you will find joy.  You will want to come back year after year.
