A Thanks to the Many Volunteers of the Outreach Program in 2017.

The following is a note of thanks from Outreach Director Audrey Collins. 

2017 was a wonderful year for some families in eastern KY. This year we welcomed a group from Louisiana led by two women. They tore off a porch and replaced it with another complete with a new roof. Thank you for your donation to the camp.

Next we welcomed a group from ‘Helping Hands Ministry’ from Loogootee, IN. They built two wheelchair ramps for families in need and have already rescheduled for next year. Thank you for all of your hard work and for always helping us with Christmas gifts for the kids.

The third group came to us from Fischers, IN. They built two wheelchair ramps and also helped out at the school and camp with various projects. This is one group that has already rescheduled for next year...

Letter from a Volunteer on the Impact of the Piarist Outreach Program

The following is a letter from the Youth Minister of  St. Paul the Cross on the impact of their mission trip to eastern KY to work with the Piarist Outreach Program. 

I first came to the Piarist Outreach Mission Trip in 2010 as a senior in high school. We worked on a lady named Mary’s house, completely re-doing her living room, working on her roof, and building a ramp for her.

From Mary, I learned what it means to share your love of Jesus with others and give generously.

Letter from a Volunteer on the Piarist Outreach Program.

The following is a letter written by Jennifer Bollich, the Youth Minister at St. Mary of False River Catholic Church, on what brought their parish to work with the Piarist Outreach Program and the aftermath of their mission trip to eastern KY.  The volunteers who come to eastern KY to donate their time and efforts do so out of a calling from God to help those in need. These volunteers stay at the Piarist Frontier Camp. This was the old Oddfellow’s Camp and was renamed after Audrey and Ed took over as caretakers and managers of the property. The Piarist School Outreach is eternally grateful for the help volunteers provide. We could not do our work without theirs.
