Rapid Relief 2008

The Archdiocesan Youth Ministry Office coordinated “Rapid Relief 2008” for people 14 and older. This service camp took place from August 11-15.  We had many youth and youth ministers in the church for three days; they were an incredible help in working with St. Wenceslaus volunteers with the Chihak Hall project....the hall will be approximately 30% larger than its pre-flood size.

The rebuild of our church would not be possible without the incredible efforts of volunteers. There is a handful of people who seem to be on the property working everyday!!!. Without you our recovery could not take place. The "ringleaders" of this band of heroes are Jerry Beer and Bob Ruzicka
