Back to school blessings

Fr. John Okoro gave out “Backpack Blessings” at all the Tri-Parish Masses at St. Francis Borgia Parish in Sturgis, St. Ambrose Parish in Henshaw, and St. William of Vercelli in Marion on August 27 and 28 for all our school-aged children.

‘I guess it was the love of Jesus!’

Our 15th summer of camp at Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp and Retreat Center was amazing! Our theme this summer was the Woman at the Well. We talked about how Jesus seeks us always, thirsts for us, desires to encounter us and challenges us to change and go make more.
