Jr. High Summer Service Camp

Have you ever wondered how God wants to use your gifts to serve others? Do you feel the call to make a difference? What is God trying to say to you right now? Come explore these big questions, serve the people of St. Max and our city community, and have a BLAST doing it at our Jr. High Summer Service Camp! During the week of July 12-16, we will spend each day working on various service projects like tie blankets for kids, birthday cards for parishioners, and our Car Wash Fundraiser for Elizabeth New Life Ministry. Each day will have a theme focused on getting to know our own spiritual father, St. Joseph. With him as our example, we are sure to come to know Jesus Christ deeper too! Camp will include daily Mass at 8:30 AM , a small breakfast, ice breakers, group discussions, service activities, and high-energy games. Camp will conclude Friday with pizza and ice cream following our car wash!

Each day will begin with check-in at 8:15 AM, and we will finish up with prayer at noon! Can’t wait to see you there! Make sure to fill out a permission slip!
