JPII Alumni Work Fest

Make a Difference for Families!

April 28-30

Each summer, more than 500 families pack up their vans and travel to Catholic Familyland for a Holy Family Fest—an inspiring week of faith and fun.

Before they get here though, we have many, many things to do to prepare our facilities. We need help cleaning out the pavilions and shelters, setting out picnic tables, building swingsets, preparing the sporting facilities, arranging the auditorium and bookstore, and much more.

Come to the JPII Alumni Work Fest and make a difference for families by helping us prepare for their arrival. This weekend is a blend of service, prayer, and fellowship. Each day, you will also be able to attend Mass, pray the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet, and socialize with the other volunteers. Food and lodging are completely free.
