LOL Maronite Club summer camp concluded today with Divine Liturgy celebrated at the Mother of Light Convent by Father Jack Morrison of Our Lady of Purgatory, New Bedford. There were LOL members, volunteers, and parents in attendance.
The LOL Club began on Monday, August 4 with a week of learning about how much God loves them through DVD's, crafts, bible sharing, games, prayer, choir practice, and snacks. This year’s program was written and coordinated by Mother Marla Marie and Sr. Therese Maria, with an Australian “Outback” theme. We were riding the Boomerang Express all the way to Jesus and the children were able to learn some fun facts about Australia along the way!
Each day’s spiritual program and catechesis presented a different theme: self-worth as God’s children; friendship and its true meaning; obedience to God and our parents; and the virtue of courage.
