Middle School Missions Camp: ​Help Teach the Next Generation to Serve

Our Middle School Youth Minister, Nick Ables, is looking for a co-leader to help him with the Middle School Missions Camp next year.


Do you have a passion for service and want to share it with to middle schoolers in our parish? We are seeking parents of 5th-7th graders to assist in keeping our annual Middle School Missions Camp (MSMC) going to help give many more middle schoolers this opportunity each summer! The goal of MSMC is to encourage middle schoolers to spend a week experiencing the Holy Spirit's call to serve those in need in our community. The current Missions Camp team would like to share the joys of working with this age group as they learn about social justice and how they can make a difference! The camp is very hands-on so the campers are able to interact with the agencies that serve the homeless, the elderly, children with special needs, and other service opportunities. If you have children in this age group, please prayerfully consider becoming part of the Missions Camp team and helping the camp continue at OLA.
