In the Footsteps of the Saints

In the same spirit as their counterpart in the Midwest, California’s St. Michael’s Patrol, the Institute’s youth group for boys, will rendezvous for its 2nd annual Summer Camp, August 13-16. The Camp will take place in Kensington, CA, at the future site of the Carmel of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Open to boys ages 11-18, registration is available now at this link. The Summer Camp welcomes and encourages fathers to join in, since the activities are wonderful occasions to reinforce the bonds between teenagers and their fathers. Each activity is organized with the intention to develop the children’s natural virtues, considered as the foundation of divine grace. The virtues fostered by St. Michael’s Patrol are: Honor, Service, Self-Giving, Leadership and Friendship, all moved by Charity. For a preview of this year’s camp, please check out last year’s camp photos.
