Thank You To All Those Who Participated This Summer 2015!

 Thank you for your interest in participating in a Home Building Work Trip!

We host three types of home building groups each summer: small groups, double groups, and Orthodox Basic Training (OBT) groups. In the spring we only host small groups. During our small group and double group weeks, teams from one or more parishes construct a single home (single group) or two homes (double group) for needy families, spend the afternoons interacting with the boys of St. Innocent's, and experience the local culture with a trip into Rosarito. During OBT weeks, we host larger groups who construct between four to seven homes in one week, we have speakers each evening who present on a variety of topics, and on Sunday we have a day of fellowship and fun at St. Innocent’s.
