2015 Campamento Kick-Off Meeting Tuesday, March 24, 7-9 PM

13 Jan

Sister Parish Mission Trip Kick-Off Meeting Tuesday, March 24, 7-9 PM, Church of Saint Edward Auditorium The Sister Parish Committee is planning our eleventh two-week long “Summer Camp” at the Hogar Teresa Toda, a girls’ home, in Azua, Dominican Republic in July 2015. This trip is for women over 18 and mother-daughter pairs for daughters over 15. We have openings for July 4-12 and July 11-19 for travelers interested in sharing a spiritual experience with young women and girls from another country. The format is similar to our own Vacation Bible School. We do skits, music, crafts, and other activities. We pray, exchange stories, share love, and spend time with the girls. Through the activities they learn English, enjoy crafts, and build self-esteem. This year for the first time, we have special plans for the girls ages 14-18. Each trip is deeply touching and spiritual. Special gifts you may share are Spanish skills, crafting and beading talents, or your professional experience (esp. healthcare, tourism, retail, scientists, government, education, and other industries). If you are interested in traveling with us this summer or helping out from Minnesota, please contact Ann McGuire to RSVP to our kick-off meeting. Ann and past travelers will be there to give an overview and answer questions.

      Mention that it is for the Teresa Toda camp. Your offering will support the camp activities. We bring all the monetary donations to the Sisters who run the camp. If, by God’s grace, we raise more money than needed for camp, the Sisters use it for school uniforms, school supplies, and other things the girls need. Thank you for blessing these girls and all of us involved with Campamento. Peace, Ann
