Totus Tuus a success at St Rita

Totus Tuus was a huge success at St. Rita, thanks to the combined efforts of volunteers and supporters who believed in this program.

From June 10 to June 15 children and teens from 1st to 12th grade learned more about their faith in a fun way, with young women and men leading them through different activities. Daily mass was part of the camp and children were lectors during the week. The camp ended with a pizza night and shaving cream fight for the teens and a hot dog lunch for the younger ones. As a reward for the good behavior during the week, seminarian Connor was selected to be turned into a human sundae by the best-behaved class.

This is the first time this camp has taken place in Aurora and the support from the St. Rita Community was key to its success: parents who enrolled their children and brought snacks, volunteers who helped receive children and hand them over to the parents at the end of the day, lunch time volunteers, teens who helped in the morning with the young ones and came back in the evening to participate, young prayer warriors who were an example to the children, parishioners who couldn’t be here to help but donated to the cause. Thank you St. Rita of Cascia for your support!

 

Totus Tuus un éxito en Santa Rita

 Totus Tuus fue un gran éxito en Santa Rita gracias a los esfuerzos combinados de voluntarios y personas que nos apoyaron y creyeron en este programa.

Del 10 al 15 de junio niños y adolescentes del 1ro al 12avo año aprendieron más sobre su fe de una manera divertida con chicos y chicas jóvenes guiándoles a través de diferentes actividades. La misa diaria fue parte del campamento y los niños participaron como lectores durante toda la semana. El campamento terminó con una fiesta de pizza y una pelea de crema de afeitar para los adolescentes y un picnic con perros calientes para los más pequeños. Como recompensa por su buen comportamiento durante la semana, el seminarista Connor fue seleccionado para ser convertido en un helado humano por la clase con el mejor comportamiento.

 Esta es la primera vez que este campamento se lleva a cabo en Aurora y el apoyo de la comunidad de Santa Rita fue clave para su éxito: padres que inscribieron a sus hijos y trajeron refrigerios, voluntarios que ayudaron a recibir a los niños al inicio del día, voluntarios a la hora del almuerzo, adolescentes que ayudaron en la mañana con los más pequeños y regresaron por la noche para participar, jóvenes guerreros de oración que fueron un ejemplo para los niños y los feligreses que no pudieron estar aquí para ayudar pero que hicieron donativos para la causa. ¡Gracia Santa Rita por su apoyo a este campamento de verano!
