Teen Service Opportunities

Service is an integral part of our Catholic faith. Several projects are offered throughout the year for Confirmation candidates as well as all interested teens. Opportunities range from events that serve our own parish to the larger community. Check below for a list of upcoming and ongoing service opportunities.

Service Opportunities

Catholic HEART Workcamp
Sun-Sat, June 4th-10th
This year's theme is Rooted. Through service to others we are challenged to walk in someone else’s shoes and to open our eyes to the needs of people. This deep and important connection is at the heart of, and is ROOTED in, the social mission of the Church. As CHWC moves into our 25th summer of service, we are ROOTED in the same mission of Christ and His Church to Love, Serve, and Connect. We have just a few spots left.
