Home work mission trip

JACKSON – The Youth Office of the Diocese of Jackson is inviting Mississippi’s Catholic teens to the Home Work Mission Trip set for July 21-25 in Northeast Mississippi, including  Tupelo, Fulton and Booneville.
Home Work is open to teens who were in grades nine, 10, 11 or 12 this past school year. “One of the great things about this event is that youth will be able to make a bunch of new friends from parishes all over Mississippi,” wrote Kathie Curtis, director of the Office of Youth Ministry, in her invitation letter.
Some of the activities may include assisting with day camp, painting parish classrooms, preparing and serving meals for the needy, doing home maintenance and repairs for the elderly, and assisting with Habitat for Humanity.
Curtis is asking youth to figure out what are their unique gifts and talents and how they can use them to serve God now.
Participants will be housed in the Catholic Life Center at St. James Catholic Church in Tupelo.
Cost is $75. Spaces are limited. Get an application on the Office of Youth Ministry page of www.jacksondiocese.org. For more information contact Kathie  Curtis, 601-949-6934, kathie.curtis@jacksondiocese.org.
