Welcome Message from Our Pastor Fr. Tom

Dear Parents/Guardians and Friends of Corpus Christi Church,

Welcome to our annual summer camp from July 1st to July 26th, 2019 (please note that there is no camp on the 4th of July). The camp will be animated in a Christian/Catholic atmosphere where love, friendship, compassion and care is paramount. It is based on the educational system of St. John Bosco, popularly known as “Don Bosco” who is a friend and father of youth.

Camp Don Bosco at Corpus Christi Church is very unique in its nature. Many of the youth counselors are from our past parish youth ministry programs and with an added blessing, we have the presence of our international volunteers who are close collaborators of the Salesians of Don Bosco brothers and priests.

The camp also offers to each child to grow in their faith as Christians. May your children grow in love and knowledge of God the Father. So welcome everyone and enjoy the camp with your children. We would be happy to have you on field trips. However please remember that parents/guardians will have to take care of themselves (additional costs of tickets/food), but it is always good to enjoy with your children these special moments of camp and share in their joy.

Once again welcome to Camp Don Bosco! I hope to see each of you in July. God bless you and your loving families.

Sincerely yours on behalf of all our Salesian brothers and priests,

–Fr. Tom
