CHURCH SCHOOL SUMMER CAMP AT ST. VLADIMIR’S CATHEDRAL PHILADELPHIA, PA
The first annual Church School Summer Camp took place June 28 & 29. Wow, what a terrific two days in the life of our parish! Little campers gathered for 2 full days filed with worship, fellowship and fun. The camp was opened with a special “prayer for students” led by Fr. Taras Naumenko who also talked to children about the Cross – the tree of life, which was the theme of this year’s camping program. The children learned about the importance and meaning of the cross in Christianity and with a large wall cross as an example Fr. Taras explained what each depiction on the cross represents. The children made cross magnets, necklaces and key chains during the hour of arts & crafts.
