Trading cell phones for hammers and saws, 830 youths came together at Massaponax High School in Fredericksburg for the 32nd diocesan WorkCamp June 23-29, sponsored by the diocesan Office of Youth, Campus and Young Adult Ministries.
With a goal each year of making homes warmer, safer and drier, 160 crews from 43 parishes will repair eight roofs, install hundreds of windows, and build decks and wheelchair ramps at 135 project sites in eight counties: Stafford, Spotsylvania, Carolina, Culpeper, King George, Hanover, Louisa and Orange.
Staff writer Elizabeth Elliott shares some of her experiences at WorkCamp this week. Read the story here.
