The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are welcoming 55 young women and chaperones for Camp Franciscan July 15-18, 2008. Eighteen of the campers are high school, college and post college age. The others are junior high students. All are eager to make friends from 6 states, 8 (arch)dioceses, and 19 parishes.
Sunday is leadership day. Those who will assist in leading activities will take time to pray, tour the Motherhouse grounds, learn about what the scriptures say about servant-leaders, as well as other helpful information that will make the camp activities run smoothly in the days ahead.
Monday at 1 p.m. all other campers arrive to learn the camp theme song, begin introductions and start fine art sessions, enjoy recreational fun time together, as well as devote significant time to growing in their relationship with God. Salvatorian Fr. Scott Jones is the official chaplain for Camp Franciscan. Other priests invited for sacramental needs on Monday evening include: Fr. Samuel Jadin O.Praem, Fr. Mathew Simonar, Fr. Loren Nys, SDS, Fr. Harold Berryman and Fr. Richard Klingeisen.
