Housing in Kentucky will be at a local church or volunteer center. 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 on further 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. 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.
Work projects in KY are geared toward home renovations for the poor and elderly. Projects can include framing, roofing, siding, sheetrock, flooring, insulation, painting, and landscape work. The group may also have an opportunity to serve daily with Mother Teresa’s sister’s, the Missionaries of Charity, in the first mission she opened in the Appalachian area.
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. There is a beautiful lake nearby, mining museums, and hiking options.
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.
