LIFE TEEN CATHOLIC HEART WORK CAMP 2016: Hard to believe that I'm asking you to think about mission trip for NEXT summer, but here I go. I can't tell you which week we will go, but I can tell you what I'm trying for. Camps sell out very quickly, but we've got a number of great options for next year. I need to get an idea of how many are interested in coming in order to reserve spots. I need one chaperone for every 5 teens, so parents please consider coming, especially if you've never come before. This is a great experience for your kids and it will be for you too! Sign up day is Monday, Aug. 17th. Rough cost will be $400. Click here for sign up genius
