To share the love of Christ as we serve the neglected, brokenhearted and the marginalized in any way needed. Equally, to inspire participants to live as disciples of Christ through serving others as a way of life and to foster the Catholic faith of each participant through the sacraments, prayer and involvement in social service.

Catholic HEART Workcamp, along with Catholic youth ministers and teens, have formed this ministry across the country and beyond. In around 50 different cities, there will be about 13,000 strong this summer from parish youth groups and schools joining together to serve as Christ modeled. As bold Catholics, we embrace this challenge to put ourselves aside and serve others by restoring homes and hearts, feeding the hungry, lifting the spirits of children, giving hope to the disabled, and providing help through partnerships with social agencies.

CHWC provides all you need to offer your young people a positive life-changing experience. You prepare at home and once you arrive, a team of college-aged students, a manager local to the area, a director from the home office, a priest to celebrate liturgy and the sacraments, and a volunteer nurse are all ready to serve you so that in return, we are able to serve together.

CHWC is a youth friendly, Christ centered ministry that faithfully and enthusiastically honors the Roman Catholic Church and its teachings. It is a powerful opportunity “to love the least of these”.
