WAD Youth Project
at St. Martin Orthodox Church in Corvallis, Oregon
St. Martin Orthodox Church in Corvallis, Oregon is in the process of constructing a new Parish Hall, which will provide facilities for social, educational, and cultural activities that currently take place in the homes of members or at third-party sites.
The project has benefited from the efforts of many volunteers, both professional contractors and plain willing workers. This June, there will be a WAD Youth Project where our youth will have an opportunity to contribute to the growth of our Church in the Northwest by helping to construct this hall.

With respect to accommodations, young men will be housed in a tent village on the Church grounds, and the young women dormitory-style in the Rectory. (Youth who live in the Corvallis area may reside at home during the project, if they prefer.) Meals will be served in the Rectory and on the Church grounds. Support for shower facilities, etc., will be arranged with the local aquatic center just a few blocks away from the Church. We plan to have a good mix of work, recreation, spiritual profit, socializing, and just plain fun.
