This week youth group is enjoying the summer trip to Harpers Ferry, WV and Washington, DC. So far the group has visited the Gettysburg and Antietam battlefields, volunteered at the St. Albans church in DC, toward the National Cathedral, and visited several monuments.
Plans for the rest of the week are: visiting more monuments and museums, volunteering at the hostel in Harpers Ferry, horseback riding on the Appalachian Trail, and participating in a ghost walk around Harpers Ferry!
The theme for the summer trip is “God and Country”. Father Dan is helping the kids the adult chaperones to understand and reflect on God’s role in our nations history.
The altar pictured at right is contained within one of the many chapels in the National Cathedral.
