Summer Opportunities for our Kids: Parish Bulletin--6-14-15
This summer we have two exciting opportunities for our kids.
The first will take place in our own parish and is called Totus Tuus, a Diocesan summer program designed to strengthen our kids’ relationship with Jesus Christ. We will be hosting a team of college students—two men and two women—in July. They will be putting on an elementary day program (Vacation Bible School on steroids) during the days (Monday, July 20th-Friday, July 24th) and junior high/high school sessions in the evenings (Sunday, July 19th-Thursday, July 23rd). The pillars of this program include catechesis, Marian devotion, Eucharist, prayer and fun. This week will also feature a parish potluck midweek and water fight to conclude the week. Keep your eyes open for more information and sign up sheets in the near future!
Second—Camp Survive, the best camp we put on in the Diocese—will be taking place Monday, August 3rd-Friday, August 7th in God’s country—McGregor. Hosted by Big Sandy Camp our junior high students (those who have completed grades 6-8) will be exposed to our vibrant Catholic faith in a whole new way. With talks by internationally renowned speakers, daily Mass, Confession, Adoration and camp games, Camp Survive is always a highlight to my year. Information and registration can be found at: http://www.dioceseduluth.org/Camp-. Sign up soon as the 200 spaces are filling up fast!
Mark your calendars for both Totus Tuus and Camp Survive! I am expecting we will get a good turn out for both of these weeks. Please continue to pray for our young people and that we may serve them well here at St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Columban Catholic parishes.God Bless!
