Why We Come
Our French African Community
Have you volunteered or given financially to the work of the St. Camillus Food Pantry? You can help again!
As you might know, the Pantry has seen record numbers of families needing assistance this year and are continually looking for volunteers and contributors to help us obtain more resources to purchase food.
To support this effort, they would like to begin featuring brief stories in the weekly bulletin and in our newsletter on "Why I Volunteer?" and "Why I Give?" If you've done this great work yourself, consider inspiring others by sharing your story!
All those interested in being part of our new domestic violence ministry are invited to a meeting in the Camillia Room from 7-9pm.
Below is the link to the PBS video Fr Mike referred to in this Sunday's homily.
St. Camillus' St. Francis Builds is happy to announce our second trip to the Lakota Sioux reservation in Pine Ridge South Dakota. Our first trip was quite successful in learning more about the Lakota culture and helping the Lakota renovate two houses. We are pleased to have been invited back to continue this interaction and work with the Lakota.
We intend the trip to run October 16-23, 2015 (give or take a day). We hope to keep the cost of the trip (airfare, housing, food, transport) under $1000 per person, and will have scholarship assistance for those who need it. We will have a mandatory introductory meeting for those interested, Sunday, July 12, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at St. Camillus Church, and three required preparatory meetings (July, Sept., Oct.) for those who are selected for the trip. Volunteers of all ages (14 and above); and any skill level are welcome to apply.
