WorkCamp 2024 is a fantastic week of service for high-school teenagers sponsored by the Diocese of Arlington! This year the camp will be held in Frederick County, Virginia, from June 22 through June 28. The Cathedral of St Thomas More plans to send a group to WorkCamp and hopes that you are interested in attending! We start every day with mass, work on a home in need during the day building wheelchair ramps, installing windows, painting houses and repairing roofs to make the residents safer, dryer, and warmer while growing in our faith and holiness through works of mercy. In the evening we have fun with friends at program.
In the months leading up to WorkCamp our youth ministry will meet to grow as a parish team and fundraise for this trip. We appreciate the assistance of all our parishioners as we bake goods for the bake sale, host trivia nights, and more. Adult leaders are needed to bring the youth and join us in this amazing experience, and volunteers are also needed for security at Homebase for just one day.
If your teen wants to learn more, or you want to volunteer, email Benjamin Paczak at BPaczak@CathedralSTM.org and join us at our WorkCamp Interest Meeting on November 5 at 6pm in the school cafeteria.
