On this week's programme we chat with Martina O'Sullivan about her upcoming Faith camp in Abbeyfeale for children aged 5-12. Martina also tells us about two other resources: Camp Veritas and Children's Adoration. We also have our usual reflection on the Sunday Gospel.
Children's Faith Camps
This week Martina O'Sullivan shared with us resources available for helping to develop children's faith experience. Martina has arranged a Faith Camp for children 5-12 years from Monday 29 July to Thursday 1 August in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick:
'The Faith Camps are a wonderful way to witness to the joy of the Faith that makes it seem attractive to both the children and the young leaders. All of what is undertaken, from art, sport, games, lessons to group-work, is all aimed towards a particular end: encouraging them to form a personal relationship with Jesus.'
St. Ita’s Faith Camp
St. Ita's Faith Camp will take place from Monday, July 29th to Thursday, August 1st in St. Mary's Boys School, Abbeyfeale. Activities include sport, art, drama, music, faith lessons and Mass. It takes place from 10.00am to 3.00pm each day and the cost is €40 for the first child and €25 per sibling. Advance registration is essential. For further information contact Martina at 087-2788834 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Martina also tells us about Camp Veritas for Children 12-18 years which was held recently in Clongowes Wood College, Co. Kildare. This was a week long 'play and pray' pilrimage and summer camp for teens attending secondary school. You can read more about it HERE and HERE.
Martina also reminded us of Children's Adoration resources which you can read more about HERE.
