Beloved Sayyidna Basil and my Brothers of DOWAMA:
Thank God, by your holy prayers we had a wonderful first session and are ready to welcome the second group of campers this afternoon. The weather has been perfect and the campers and staff have had an amazing time so far.
From Christian Ed. to Sports to Divine Services, it's very easy to see the Holy Spirit's presence in everything happening here.
 It has also been very nice to worship in our newly renovated St Raphael Chapel. New sheet rock, paint, ceiling and air conditioning have all enhanced the chapel. This, as you know, was done through the generosity of the faithful of our Diocese. If there is any way any of you can journey up to CSR this week, it would be OUR delight to welcome you to camp.
Thank you all for the sustaining prayers you have offered and continue to offer, and for the campers and counselors your parishes have sent to us. They are our greatest joy. Please continue to keep us in your holy prayers.
