DEADLINE TO COMPLETE THE ENTIRE REGISTRATION PROCESS IS MAY 3, 2021.
The St. Joseph Missions Committee invites you to participate in the annual "Appalachia Men of Faith Mission Trip" in conjunction with Hand-in-Hand Ministries. Space is limited to 25 volunteers; spots will be filled on a first-come/first-serve basis (which includes receipt of payment). You may also register male children or grandchildren ages 14 or older (you, or a designated adult, must accompany them on the trip). Male friends and family members are also welcome, regardless of church affiliation or home location. No special skills are required.
Our work will be serving the residents of some of the poorest counties in the country by building relationships and performing home repairs and other projects. They always save some great projects for the "Arkansas Boys". We will have plenty of fellowship time while travelling, working, dining, praying, and relaxing together. See the attached tentative schedule (on the right of this screen) for more information. Due to the ongoing pandemic, additional safety guidelines are also in place. See the attached guidelines (on the right of the screen).
Most volunteers will travel via carpool to/from Kentucky and the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Conway (approx. 4 men per vehicle). Fuel and meal expenses while travelling will be paid or reimbursed by the Missions Committee. Volunteers are responsible for paying their own $275 Registration Fee (includes most meals, lodging, and tee shirt).
If you wish to volunteer, but the Registration Fee presents a great financial hardhip, please contact Don Greenland (contact info below). Limited scholarship funds are available.
