Parish Camp in Perth Amboy, NJ

As you can see, there is no stop in our parish calendar this summer. Just two weeks ago we completed 4 weeks school camp and now started the parish Bible Summer Camp and that is good thing. The first day started out at our school hall with Fr. Ivan leading twenty-eight children in prayer to Almighty God. Then a day was filled with variety of fun activities that included a visit to Assumption Church where our parishioner Mrs. Melanie Fedynyshyn gave a church tour to our campers who were eager to learn about their faith and strengthen relationships with one another. Sisters Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará taught three groups of children about the Holy Eucharist, St. Tarcisius the patron saint of all altar servers, played Bingo and various games outside.   The students made crafts, played soccer with Father, made bracelets and had snacks/ lunch together. Culinary groups 1 and 2 had a delicious time making and eating dirt today. Of course the dirt was made of pudding and oreos with a little whipped cream. Everyone topped off their dirt with a gummy worm. The 3rd group ventured into the world of baking funfetti cake. This amazing spiritual experience is an incredible gift to the children of our parish and it could not be given without the help our parish volunteers, the Assumption Catholic School teachers, Sisters and Father. Our parish continues to grow and deepen in our commitment to make disciples of Jesus, increase our prayer, build community, and reflect genuine love to one another.
