Project Mexico Home Building 2015 @ Mexico
Project Mexico Home Building 2015 Maximum of 25 volunteers We host three types of home building groups each summer: small groups, double groups, and Orthodox Basic Training (OBT) groups. During our small group and double group weeks, teams from one or more parishes construct a single home (single group) or two homes (double group) for needy families, spend the afternoons interacting with the boys of St. Innocent’s, and experience the local culture with a trip into Rosarito. During OBT weeks, we host larger groups who construct between four to seven homes in one week, we have speakers each evening who present on a variety of topics, and on Sunday we have a day of fellowship and fun at St. Innocent’s.

2015 College Missions Trip to Orphanages of the Ukraine
The College Student Mission Trip to aid orphanages in Ukraine, is a ministry of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA. We hope to bring aid and comfort to special needs orphans and orphanages in a country that currently does not have the means to do so. By our actions, we hope to show the face of Christ to these children, their caregivers, their administrators, our host families and all we come in contact with and by doing so reaffirm the Holy Orthodox Faith amongst the people of Ukraine. We pray that by offering daily prayer services, as well as our love and works, that we will bring not only ourselves but all involved closer to Christ our God. This mission is also devised to provide young adults with the opportunity to deepen and learn about their faith through true Christian witness, pilgrimage, fellowship, and love.
