Girls' Camp is open to girls 13-18. The camp takes place here on the monastery grounds and is led by us and other young adult women. The event is sponsored by the Eparchy of Parma Office of Vocations and provides an opportunity for teen girls to discover different vocations in the Church and develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
For more information and to register, visit our Teen Girls' tab. Be sure to register by June 16! Space is limited! There is also a camp for boys 8-18, taking place at the same time across the street from us at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariapoch. More information will be available soon at www.parma.org. We will close the camp at the Shrine with the boys and their families on Sunday, June 29, with a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with Bishop John, followed by lunch.
