Calling teens for Summer Camp in Haiti: For the past 5 summers, teens and adults from St Ann and beyond have traveled to our sister parish, St Claire in Haiti to lead
a summer camp for about 100 kids of the parish.
It has been an extremely rewarding experience for everyone. Last summer, teens from St Maria Goretti High School and St. Augustine parish (Williamsport) joined the group.
There will be a reunion of past participants and an information session for all interested teens and their parents on Monday, December 30 in the evening. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Agnes at AgnesTS@aol.com or Ralph at ParchmentR@verizon.net
NOTE: you need to be at least 16 years old by July 1, 2014 to participate in the Haiti camp.
