The Home of the Mother also held a summer camp in Italy this year! Since there are two communities of Servant Sisters very close together, Lumezzane in the province of Brescia and Brignano Gera D´Adda in the province of Bérgamo, we were able to come together for the occasion. 58 girls, 36 from Brignano and 22 from Lumezzane participated this year in the summer camp in Vilminore di Scalve, a wonderful place in the mountains of Bérgamo.
This summer, as usual, we had a girls´ summer encounter in Spain, in a little town called Peranzanes in the province of Leon. Over 45 girls, ages 7-18, from all over Spain took part in the summer encounter from July 18th-28th. But it wasn´t just your typical summer camp. Oh, no. It was truly survival of the fittest.
We´re back from the Home of the Mother Boys´ Summer Encounter in Leon, Spain! For all of us who are able to participate, the Home of the Mother Summer Encounters are, each year, a great event in our lives. It´s an unforgettable experience which has a big impact, on both a human and spiritual level, on all those who take part.
After much preparation, we were really excited to get the Home of the Mother English Immersion Camp underway in Gavilanes (Avila, Spain), from June 29th-July 14th. 90 girls took part, aged 8-18, from all over Spain and the USA. For a lot of them, it was their first time participating in a Home of the Mother activity.
A year ago Sr. Clare was invited to partake in the exposition “Young Witness of the Faith, the Saints Next Door.”
