Help Send a Kid to Camp

As in years past, Ascension will again help send a kid to camp, giving $1400 from the Lapsley Fund, which is designated to give urban children a summer experience in the country at Incarnation Camp. But this year…

We are challenging the congregation to match this amount for the Summer Overnight Leadership Camp of Rural and Migrant Ministry. This camp offers the fun of being a kid at camp to the children of farmworkers and other migrants, who often live in situations of great challenge both economically and socially.

If you are able to help, please mail a check, payable to the Church of the Ascension, with “RMM Camp” in the memo line.

And what’s more, you are invited to a House Party here at Ascension for the Summer Overnight Leadership Camp on Tuesday evening, July 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Come hear wonderful stories, meet some folks from RMM, enjoy food and drink, and bring your checkbook. Friends are also welcome. For more information, see visit the Rural Migrant Ministry’s camp webpage, or speak to Mother Liz. To RSVP, please call the parish office: 212-254-8620.
