    2017 Theme: ROOTED - In this world of constant and uncertain change, we at Catholic HEART Workcamp find hope in being ROOTED in the truth that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) We have a mission to be an inspiring voice for the young Church! We all know this journey is not a simple one, but when we are ROOTED in the choice to join together, we can lead others to walk with His purpose in mind. It is our mission to uplift, encourage and lead this young generation to stay on course, remain ROOTED in their Catholic faith, and confidently walk with Christ. Through service to others we are challenged to walk in someone else’s shoes and to open our eyes to the needs of people. This deep and important connection is at the heart of, and is ROOTED in, the social mission of the Church. As CHWC moves into our 25th summer of service, we are ROOTED in the same mission of Christ and His Church to Love, Serve, and Connect.

    “So then just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, rooted and built up in Him, strengthen in faith as you were taught” Colossians 2:7
