Summer Camp Covecrest
To the community of Sacred Heart of Jesus, I say, thank you! In youth ministry, we dream big with hopeful anticipation for the summer. With school, sports and extracurricular activities, summer is a significant time of year for us to provide opportunities for teens to encounter community and the person of Jesus Christ.
Earlier this year I asked you to support our teens financially on their trip to Summer Camp Covecrest. You responded loud and clear with your support of over $13,000. This level of generosity allowed our students to attend camp for 50% less than its original cost. Your generosity goes beyond financial support; your prayers were also heard loud and clear.
Our students had a life-changing experience at summer camp. Summer camp and our Life Teen ministry go beyond just a singular event. The transformation that takes place when we are called on retreat (or summer camp) lays a firm foundation for a student’s life with Christ. This radical encounter with Jesus eliminates the question of “Is Jesus really there?” They see Him in such powerful ways.
Please take time to read through the testimonies of teens experience at camp. If you would like to see photos, quotes and our camp video, please checkout www.shbroussard.org/covecrest.
