St. George & Branches Youth Ministry Mission Trip
Harlan, Kentucky

When: July 2nd– July 8th

Who: Incoming Freshman – Young Adults

We will be taking a group of 50 participants (20 from St. George 30 from St. Steven and St. Elizabeth Seton.) Spots are first come first serve, based on payment.

Cost: $270.00.

What will we be doing?
St. Stephen, St. Elizabeth Seton and St. George parishes are partnering with COAP (Christian Outreach to Appalachian People.) “COAP was conceived in 1977 as a grass roots inter-denominational relief effort in response to a devastating flood, which caused great destruction of homes in Harlan County. In 1980, a Mennonite volunteer, Marlin Yoder, helped to form Christian Family Housing Services to help actualize the dream of helping low-income families with their housing needs.”

The parishes will be driving 12 passenger vans to travel to Harlan, KY. We will be staying at a camp provided by COAP, CAMP SLEEPYHOLLOW. We will be responsible for cooking and cleaning up after ourselves.

Our group will also have sightseeing tours in the evenings, team-building activities, prayer and meditations, and travel around the local area. We will be working to improve life in a small area of theAppalachian Mountains by renovating homes, new construction, landscaping, and more. Students willreceive approximately 30 hours community service credit.
