Make a Difference

For Families
Each summer, more than 500 families pack up their vans and travel to Catholic Familyland®. There is so much to do before they get here. Each year we wonder how it will all get done.

Can you help us with our preparations this year?

Come to the JPII Alumni Work Fest and make a difference for families by helping us prepare for their arrival. This weekend event is a blend of service, prayer, and fellowship in the spirit of Pope St. John Paul II, who reminded the Church that “Human work is redeemed, is restored in Jesus Christ.”

Serve & Pray

  • Work on a Project

    Help to prepare CFL for the families who will come this summer.

  • Take Time for Prayer

    Confession, daily Mass, Rosary, & Divine Mercy Chaplet

  • Bring Your Friends

    Young adults (18+), adults, & Disciple Members are welcome.

Meals & Lodging Are on Us

Your meals and lodging during the JPII Alumni Work Fest are completely free, as a small way to show our appreciation for your help.
Thank you in advance for the sacrifices of time and talent you will make to join us for the weekend!
