Two groups of CTK students and teachers each spent a week of service in rural West Virginia through the Nazareth Farm & Appalachia Service Project (ASP) trips. Both trips consisted of various types of home repair as well as engaging in Appalachian culture, team building, and reflection. The Nazareth Farm group worked alongside Cristo Rey Jesuit volunteers. The ASP team was part of the St. Giles Parish, Oak Park contingent, and represented the eighth year of CTK involvement.
