Housing in Lake Charles will be at a volunteer housing center. Participants should plan on bringing sheets and towels. Guys and girls will have separate sleeping areas. The Catholic Mission Trips, Inc., staff will sleep separately from the group at all times. Check with your site coordinator for more housing details.


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, while you are out touring the city. Breakfasts are generally continental and we pack a sack lunch. Dinners are always hot.

Work Projects

Work projects in Lake Charles are focused on 2020 Hurricane disaster recovery and rebuilding projects for the elderly and underprivileged. Projects in Lake Charles include deconstruction and cleanup work or rebuilding work, such as framing, roofing, siding, sheetrock, flooring, insulation, painting, building wheelchair ramps, and landscape work.

Free Day

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. Most groups go sightseeing around New Orleans or spend the day at the water park.


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.
