Mother Maria Kaupas Center Purpose

The Mother Maria Kaupas Center seeks to provide volunteers the opportunity to build community while integrating faith, service, and justice into their lives within the Mount Carmel Area. Some of the community building opportunities offered include local service and reflection experiences. We hope that through these experiences people will form ongoing relationships, especially within Mount Carmel and the surrounding communities.
