Save these upcoming Saturday dates. Come to one or come to all! Invite a family to join you.
We will gather at the St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church’s lower parking lot at 7 am (we will depart no later than 7:30 am). Please register for a project on OFNO website . Once you have selected a project, your spot is reserved and you will receive an email reminder a few days before the trip.
Remember to bring a valid passport (picture ID and ORIGINAL birth certificate for those under 18 years) for re-entry to the US. Carpools are encouraged. If you will be driving, it is required that all cars have liability insurance at a minimum ($15 per day). Check with your auto insurance company for assistance on acquiring coverage. AAA sells insurance and you may also purchase them before entering the Mexican border. Click here for more important details (directions, trip information etc.)
The orphanage is only 6 miles from the Mexican border. Please bring water, hat and sunscreen. We start work immediately upon arrival and break for lunch (lunch sponsored by Knights of Columbus of Spring Valley). Depending on the number of volunteers we have signed up, we can have jobs done as early as 2 pm. We’ve had 100 volunteers join us during our last trip! The wait at the border upon your return to San Diego (passport inspection) can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the line.
Please visit OFNO.org where you can learn more about how you can participate in this growing ministry and sign up for our trip/s! If you are unable to travel with us, we thank you in advance for your continued prayers for our safety and generosity that allows us to continue to purchase supplies for various work projects. God bless!
This is a great way for your family to spend time together in service for others. Students will earn 8 hours of community service.Follow Nazareth Orphanage on Facebook
