Students from Oakland Catholic and Central Catholic served as Christ's Hands and Feet to the community of Webster Springs, WV in their annual Appalachia Mission trip June 23-28. 70 students and 25 chaperones worked on home renovation projects for families in the community while the families in turn lovingly welcomed our students into their lives. Each day students learned new skill sets from their chaperones and foreman from putting up dry wall to painting to plumbing projects.
They developed team bonds and friendships with other students they had never met through the unexpected obstacles and successes encountered on each project. Each evening, students had the opportunity to explore Webster Springs, play games and reflect on the day in their small groups.
