A week full of the love of Christ!

From June 26th to June 30th, a group of middle schoolers and high schoolers from our Parish had a wonderful week full of the love of Jesus. We joined 200 youth and adults from 8 other parishes in a week with many surprises! We all experienced a life-changing encounter with the Lord.

Experience Jesus to the Full!

"When I came to this camp, I had no idea what I was in for, I thought it would be just like a normal summer camp with more praying. On the first day I realized it was much more than that. Over the course of this week, I have learned how to be an authentic disciple and how to really experience Jesus in a full, complete way. I can’t wait to come back next year! Never in my life have I been so happy and peaceful. This camp has truly changed my life for the better." - Olivia Michael (6th grade)


"Other than making lots of new friends and the yummy food, my highlight was the time of adoration. It was cool to have others around me that respected prayer and supported each other. I am excited to be a prayer counselor next year!" - West (8th grade)

It was an extraordinary blessing to be part of Extreme Faith Camp!

"Participating in Extreme Faith Camp as a parent - small group leader was an amazing experience for me, and it had a tremendous effect on our daughters and their friends who attended. It was impressive to observe the perfect balance of faith and fun; to see the joy in middle-school faces as they freely talked about their faith; to watch new friendships being made as the kids ran from one fun activity to the next; and to witness their absolutely beautiful encounters with our Lord during Adoration. We will all draw from this our experiences at Extreme Faith Camp for the rest of our lives. I can’t wait to go back." - Danette Halloran (Parent-Chaperone)

"The most impactful moment for me, was at the completion of Mass on Monday evening, when we processed the Blessed Sacrament from the gymnasium to the adoration chapel, to enthrone Jesus for the remainder of the week. The kids spent the rest of the week coming and going from adoration. I would regularly see 10-15 students in there praying and adoring Jesus."

Praying the Rosary at 7:30 AM in the Morning!

We shared many special moments in the presence of God. Adoration, prayer, Confession, daily Mass and of course the Rosary to Mary, our Mother. The last day we shared a special time together praying for the intercession of our Mother, asking her to help us get closer to her Son, Jesus.
