Girls' Camp in Peranzanes, Spain, July 18-28, 2017.
“I am not afraid of freedom! Lord, I am not afraid of life! I want to give myself!” This was the cry of 72 girls in the 2017 Peranzanes Camp. Together with the camp counselors and the Sisters, there were about 90 of us, and this year we have made the most of it!
Father Rafael helped us grow spiritually with points of meditation in the morning and with Mass in the afternoon. It was beautiful, and the girls took advantage of these moments of encounter with the Lord. If the Lord is in the center of the camp, we really don't have to do very much! He is the one who acts in the souls of the girls and changes them from within.
Our camp was under the protection of Sister Clare and St. Philip Neri, very joyful saints. It is difficult to decide what was the best part of the camp, between night games, water games, daily meetings, times of prayer and the hikes. But we believe that all the girls have had a strong experience of God and of Our Mother, the Virgin Mary. They all have improved in many ways. They have made good friends and have had a great time.
We hope the Lord's joy will be their strength throughout the course of the school year! Until the next encounter!
