Catholic Kidz Camp is on of our largest community outreach programs – often a child or family’s first contact with the Catholic Church or ANY church and we need your help to make it an amazing experience! If you saw last year’s castle then you know we set the bar pretty high! This year we need help constructing cardboard trains! The attached pictures are some examples of some pretty simple-to-make trains that would transform our parish hall into a train depot from which children will “travel” all over the world on the “Queen of Heaven Express” – a special holy train traveling to the far away places around the globe visited by Our Blessed Mother: Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe, England and Ireland. Children discover how Mary brings us closer to Jesus through the power of the Rosary. Mysteries and Messages are revealed at each stop. The program focuses on Catholic identity and teaches the Bible from the Catholic perspective. It introduces saints as faith heroes and heroines while encouraging family prayer through a daily Rosary.

Please contact Suzette Taylor for more information. Trains can be constructed on site or in your garage and brought into the hall on or before June 9. We have one amazing volunteer already but he can’t do it alone!!! (Free boxes can be obtained by calling Benson’s, Lowe’s or home Depot.)

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
The Gospel According to Matthew
