Bishop Gregory Issues Archpastoral Letter on Family Camp
Family Camp 2016 - Protocol N. 6/2016
Glory to Jesus Christ!
Dear Diocesan Parents and Children,
Our Diocese is pleased to offer our fourth annual Family Camp at Camp Nazareth this year in conjunction with Family Day. The event is exactly what it sounds like. Families “camping” together in the Camp cabins and participating in a weekend of services, games, discussions, activities and challenges that are all designed to help families deepen their relationship with God and one another.
Last year we had a wonderful time together and we are looking forward to being together again this year. We know our families need support and help, especially in this day and age. Here is an event to support and sustain our families as we continue to develop our own Diocesan Family Ministry.
Family Camp is scheduled for Friday, June 3 – Sunday, June 5, 2016.
We have planned a variety of activities and events that will allow your family the opportunity to learn together, have fun together, pray together and simply be together in the peaceful environment of the Camp. Remember that we have newly renovated cabins with a few more comforts than before including private showers, living rooms and air-conditioning. We also have the newly constructed High and Low Ropes Course for those that are brave enough!
Families will be staying together, and have to themselves a Camp cabin; plenty of space to rest and relax and simply be together during and after the weekend’s festivities. Please see the section entitled “Packing for Camp” in the “Camper/Parent Information Guide” on the Camp website to help you plan what to pack.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity for you and your family. Come and help us to make this an ongoing and rewarding event for our Diocesan families.
Space is limited to the first 10 families, so please send in your registration forms soon. They are due by Friday, May 20, 2016.
With my blessing I remain
Working in His Vineyard,
+BISHOP GREGORY OF NYSSA
