2014 ORPR Summer Camp Opens

The 2014 session of the ORPR Diocesan Orthodox Summer Camp opened on July 5th with 70 children in attendance.  After parents helped their children unpack and settle into their respective cabins, a bell was run to call all to a molieben service at the church.  In his sermon, Bishop Peter explained that the camp aims to instill Orthodox values in the children over its month long session.  He exhorted the parents to continue to bring their children regularly to church over the other eleven months of the year so they might receive a moral basis that would guide their journey through college and young adulthood when many fall away from the Church and Her practices.  After lunch, there was a brief farewell of parents with their children.  With hardly any time to fret, the children were soon off to their next activities and to settle into camp life.
