With the theme of “His Love Endures Forever”, the camps this summer reminded us of who God is and of his wonderous love. God is faithful, he is loving and he loves us infinitely. Mass, prayer time, faith presentations, campfires and singing, delicious home-cooked meals, hikes and all of God’s creation, crafts and good times with friends were all reminders of God’s love for us.
