SUMMER CAMP REACHES THE SUMMIT

20150617_105350

Saint Stephen School Summer Camp spent a beautiful Wednesday at Sleeping Giant State Park. Our campers hiked over a mile and a half to the top of Sleeping Giant to reach the stone tower observatory, known as “The Castle”. There, they enjoyed a picnic lunch and took in the beautiful scenery. Looking out the “Castle Windows”, campers saw gorgeous views of Long Island Sound, New Haven and neighboring towns. This past week, campers also enjoyed Zumba class, a day at Basset Field, a visit from the Regional Water Authority where they discovered just “How does water get to your house?” as well as other hands-on experiments. They also enjoyed a morning of Duckpin Bowling at Johnson’s Bowling Lanes.

Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go.

~”Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, Dr. Seuss

FATHER TOM AND “OUR FATHER’S RIDE”

IMG_9687 - Copy

Last Friday, students in Grades 6-8 went to Lourdes of Litchfield to see Father Tom and Priests from other Catholic Schools in the area,begin their pilgrimage of 350 miles to the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, in Emmitsburg Maryland, as part of “Our Father’s Ride”

Their mission is to raise money for Catholic Education. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, was the foundress of Catholic Schools in America. As of Wednesday, June 3rd, Father Tom was leaving the area of Reading, Pennsylvania, battling the elements (rain and wind, just like we experienced) and taking shelter in a corner deli, where the owners were kind enough to provide some shelter for the Priests, giving them towels to dry off and allowed them to stay and “weather the storm”. “There is a great camaraderie among us”, Father Tom said. ” We are all there for one another, helping each other to ‘keep on peddling'”.  They’ve met many kind people along the way and despite the drawbacks of driving rain and rough terrain, he is really enjoying the experience.

Many thanks to those who have sponsored Father Tom on his journey. For updates, please visit www.ourfathersride.com
