Event description

Description

Manus Christi is Latin for "Hands of Christ." Manus Christi is an active reflection of St. Teresa's words, mixing vibrant prayer, engaging catechesis and formation, and significant service with and to those in need. This week-long service and mission experience takes place in Huttonsville, WV and gives entering 9-12 graders the opportunity to encounter Christ in those in need while learning about and living the concepts of personal dignity, the common good, solidarity, and subsidiarity.*

ADVENTURE

In addition to traditional prayer experiences and service opportunities, we will use the amenities of the summer camp at Bishop Hodges Pastoral Center (BHPC) like the pool with 90’ water slide for relaxation and the climbing tower and zip line for teaching the truths of Catholic social thought. And that is just the beginning of the adventure.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The Bishop Hodges Conference Center is home to the ministry. The Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston has recently turned this upscale pastoral center with hotel-style rooms into a center for youth evangelization at the service of those in need. From every room having its own bathroom, to the dining room’s breathtaking views, to the beautiful art on the walls, this is an ideal setting to encounter Christ.

DEPTH OF RELATIONSHIP

The Catholic Church has been ministering to the people in the Tygart Valley for over 70 years through the agricultural ministry of the Salesians and the hospitality of those who live and work with the BHPC. We partner with Catholic Charities and Habitat for Humanity to serve our neighbors, and we are in this for the long haul.


Total cost is $315 for youth. Chaperones are $250. Clergy and Religious are free. Transportation from the Greensburg Diocese will be provided. A deposit of $50 per person is due by November 1, 2018. A portion of the fee ($157.50 youth/$125 adults) is eligible for Francis Fund grant. Please make sure you use the youth application. Applications will be due January 2, 2019.
