Housing in California will be at a local church, school, or volunteer house. Participants should plan on bringing sleeping bags. Most of the time we are sleeping on the floor of a gym or community center. Guys and girls will have separate sleeping areas. The Catholic Mission Trips, Inc., staff will sleep separately from the group at all times.
Meals will be provided starting Sunday evening when you arrive, until you depart the following Saturday. The only meals that are not included are your free day meals. Breakfasts are generally continental and we pack a sack lunch. Dinners are always hot. Let us know if there are any dietary restrictions or allergies.
California will be a new work site in 2017. Groups will work with Catholic Charities on a variety of projects, including maintenance and repair, feeding the hungry, etc.
Free Day Option
Each group has the option to use one of their days as a free day. Most groups plan on taking Friday as their free day.
Pray for good weather. If we get rain, it’s possible that the outdoor projects will be cancelled for the day. Catholic Mission Trips, Inc., will try to arrange both outdoor and indoor projects for each group.
$300-$375 per person
