Philippines House for the Poor

Our Corporal Works of Mercy Philippines program is based in Loon, Bohol, our pastor Fr. Mel’s hometown. He has been instrumental in overseeing the needs of the community.

We work closely with the “House for the Poor” organization to build homes for those that have lost everything in the hurricane and earthquake of the last decade.

To date, we have completed three homes and have made major repairs to others that were in great need.

In 2018, Loon, Bohol, was the site of our yearly parish mission trip. Eight dedicated parishioners made the long 14-hour journey to help build homes, conduct a medical mission, and deliver school supplies. Our next mission trip to the Philippines is expected to be in 2021.
