PROJECT OF THE WEEK
Church Camp for the Holidays!
Again this year, 50 young people from the Armenian Catholic community of Venyov went to Catholic summer camp. Kids aged from 9 to 17 were spent a week with friends in a lovely spot and had lots of fun while deepening their faith.
These summer camps have been held before in previous years, and have always been a huge success. The parish priest, Father Sedrak Khitaryan, writes, “The Church plays an immeasurably important role in the upbringing of these children and in the formation of their value system. Their religion forms the inner world of these children.” He is delighted these young people are able to receive spiritual nourishment while attending these summer camps organized with the help of young volunteers from the parish. He is happy the children are receiving this while at the same time relaxing, having fun and enjoying an unforgettable experience.
But without the help of Aid to the Church in Need it would be impossible to fund and organize these events! So this year, thanks to your generous support, we are helping them again with a contribution of $5,800 CAD.
