ANNOUNCING THE THEME FOR SUMMER 2018

E C H O


“Be imitators of God and walk in love, as Christ loved us…” (Ephesians 5:1-2)

As followers of Christ, we are called to imitate the very acts of love and kindness that He demonstrated throughout His life on earth. We are called to ECHO the heart of Jesus in our world today by serving the neglected, brokenhearted, and marginalized members of society.

Catholic Heart Workcamp invites YOU into our mission this summer to ECHO Christ’s love in communities across the country. We are calling all teenagers, college students, young adults, and youth leaders to join us for a week of service, friendships, spiritual growth, and memories that will last a lifetime.
