Mission Project:

In the Diocese of West Texas relationships with local chapters of Habitat for Humanity are numerous and in this 6th year of Youth In Action, we offer “A Day in Partnership with Habitat for Humanity”. The work for the day will be varied but will range from working on landscaping, clearing property, construction, and assisting at the ReStore. Habitat for Humanity is very excited to have us as a partner for the weekend and we are excited to offer them lots of willing hands and feet! As always we have some great fun planned, it’s a perfect weekend to get back in touch with your DWTX friends and we hope you will join us for the weekend. Space is limited this year so register soon! (We will have to travel to the sites and therefore transportation is required for all registrants with adults in vehicles with seat belts. Community service hours will be certified for those who need them as well.)
