Mission Experience St. Kitts & Nevis

June 1 - 15*

* Can't commit for two weeks? That's fine! You choose the dates you can help

St. Kitts 3.jpgGet ready for an adventure! Holy Family Parish on the island of St. Kitts needs maintenance work done to the church and grounds. Spend one or two weeks in the tropics really making a difference. 

Join a group of volunteers and assist the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters on the island of St. Kitts to complete several projects that need immediate attention at a local church.  Activities include: 

  • Replacing church windows
  • Installing new doors 
  • Building a garden for the preschool
  • Beautifying the church grotto
  • Other day-to-day activities 

Program Goals

Our goal is to allow volunteers to engage in the missionary work of the Church. Working alongside priests, brothers and sisters, you will see the depth and breadth of missionary life. Through your efforts, you will be helping those among us who are most in need.

During your time in St. Kitts, volunteers will stay with parish host families. Meals are provided by host families and the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters.  It’s an opportunity to be immersed in the culture of St. Kitts and meet new friends! 

In addition to completing projects at the church, participants will have time to enjoy the beautiful island surroundings and travel to the nearby island of Nevis.
