Light of Life (LOL) – Maronite Bible Camp 2015

By Natalie Salameh
LOL Club Maronite summer camp concluded August 7th with Divine Liturgy celebrated at the Mother of Light Convent by Chorbishop Joseph Kaddo of St. Anthony of the Desert Parish, Fall Rive, attended by LOL members, volunteers, and parents. 

The LOL Club began on August 3 with a week of learning about God’s love in engaging DVD's, crafts, bible sharing, games, prayer, choir practice, and snacks. This year’s program was written and facilitated by Sr. Therese Maria, with a “Son Surf” beach theme. We had lots of fun in the sun!  
Each day’s spiritual program and catechesis presented a different theme: loving our family, obedience; overcoming our fears; fighting temptation; and the beauty of forgiveness.

After the closing Liturgy, all those in attendance enjoyed a pizza lunch, mini-golf and bumper boats at Caddy Shack. The children enjoyed our time together, and it was great to hear that affirmed by the parents who mentioned to us that their kids were “having so much fun”.
