Antiochian Camps Remind Priests of Scholarship Deadline
February 27, 2008
Dear Brother in Christ,
Christ is in our midst!
This is just a last second reminder regarding camp scholarships through the generosity of the Order of St Ignatius. Each parish was mailed a form for awarding up to $700 in camping scholarships. The scholarships may be applied to any of our eight camps:
- Antiochian Village - Pennsylvania
- Camp St George - Iowa
- Camp St Nicholas - California
- Camp St Raphael - Oklahoma
- Camp St Thekla – South Carolina
- Camp Transfiguration - Canada
- St John Summer Camp - Alaska
- St Mary of Egypt Camp - Washington
The forms that were mailed to you in early January must be postmarked by March 1st and returned to our office. All of our camps are receiving numerous requests for additional scholarship assistance. We are unable to provide such assistance until we know what scholarship funds remain. It is for this reason we must insist that the St Ignatius Scholarship forms be returned this week. If you have a camper who has a particular need for additional scholarship assistance that your parish is unable to provide, please have them write to the camp director of the camp they wish to attend stating their specific circumstances and needs. To contact our camps, please follow the link to our website: http://www.antiochian.org/camps
If you have already sent in your scholarship form, I thank you for assisting us and more importantly taking care of your youth who so desperately need our attention and care.
May our Lord bless you with a fruitful Lenten journey to the empty tomb!
Yours brother in Christ,
Fr Anthony Yazge
