Youth Plan Mission Trip
Will participate with City Camp at St. Gabe’s
This year our high school youth are going to try a new kind of mission trip: one that is in our own backyard. Under the umbrella of our existing relationship with St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church in the Olney section of Philadelphia, our Redeemer families and chaperones will be volunteering at the Diocese of Pennsylvania’s City Camp. City Camp is a diocese-wide program that runs in the summer at various churches. It provides fun, safe, and recreational activities for children who need them.
Our youth are looking forward to bringing their own interests to the team of volunteers. Some of our young people are particularly adept with a baseball, others favor art, and drama. Several of our adult chaperones have extensive experience running Vacation Bible School and leading arts and crafts activities. All of us resolve to participate in a meaningful way.
We look forward to strengthening our ties to St. Gabriel’s as we learn how to be the hands and feet of the church in our City of Brotherly Love.
This opportunity is open to ALL in the parish, not just youth group members and leaders. If you are interested in participating, please let us know by using the online signup here.
