South Texas

HousingBasilica Mosaic

Housing in South Texas will be at a local church, school, or volunteer house. Men, women, boys and girls will have separate sleeping areas.


Meals will be provided starting Monday 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.

Work Projects

In South Texas, we do a lot of home renovation projects. The work can include roofing, siding, sheet rock, insulation, flooring, doors, and windows. You will get the biggest “wow” factor here and your before and after pictures will be substantial.

Free Day Option

Friday can be a half work day or free recreation day. Groups who travel a long distance sometimes take their free day as they travel home. Let your site coordinator know if you prefer Friday as a half work day, whole work day, or free day. Padre Island is only 1 hour away, so often, groups take a day to go to the beach.


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.
