ReCreation binds our community together. Through diocesan, convocational, and intergenerational events we become more aware of our call to be one Church, one people united and made whole through faith.
This August, 23 seventh and eighth graders will travel from Jerusalem to Texas to join their U.S. friends from Houston, Boston, Vermont and North Carolina for Kids4Peace. Over 11 days at Camp Allen and the Cathedral, these Christian, Jewish and Muslim second-year campers will continue the peace-making that began last summer. They are building friendships that transcend politics, religion and geography serving as an important example in their communities in the Middle East and in the U.S.
Kids4Peace relies on donations of sleeping bags, towels, flashlights and money to run our camps. Our wish list includes 40 flashlights, 40 sleeping bags, 40 pillows, 40 pillow cases and 80 bath towels. For more information, or to donate supplies, contact Lisa Puccio (713-590-3323). To make a financial contribution, visit the Camp Allen website and designate "Kids4Peace."
