Our Lady of the Fields will be our “home base” for the week. Mornings are spent doing service at various locations and afternoons doing a fun group activity. The week concludes with an entire day at Hershey Park on Friday. The cost is $200 and is limited to 15 participants from each parish. Spots are filled on a first-come, first served basis.
