“Thank you so much to everyone who came and cut and kitted all the craft material for Campamento 2017! Twenty volunteers—campamento travelers, past travelers, future travelers, and our important non-traveling supporters—came ready to work (on May 23rd). We started at 6:30pm and were done by 7:30pm—incredible. All this help improves camp. Instead of doing this prep work while there, travelers can spend time with the girls. I hope you all enjoyed it and will come back next year. Thank you and peace!”

This summer, women from our parish will travel to Teresa Toda to deliver a fun VBS-type camp, called Campamento, to a home for very poor girls run by Carmelite nuns in the Dominican Republic. If you want to learn about becoming a traveler in July, contact Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org or 952-239-3488. Other ways to get involved include:
Song Books: A brand new way to support Teresa Toda and the mission trip this summer is to purchase a bilingual hymnal for $15.00. Write a check to “Church of St. Edward” and make sure to indicate that your donation is for Teresa Toda hymnals.
Shoes & Backpacks: Clean, sturdy backpacks and two types of shoes (32 pairs in all) have been requested; view specifications and shoe sizes at http://tinyurl.com/shoes4girls
Donate: Donations like health and school supplies will be collected soon at our parish.
