On a Sunday morning 10 years ago while visiting the fascinating city of Istanbul, I left my hotel to attend Mass in one of the few Catholic Churches of the city. I went early since I did not have the exact address, but the concierge at the hotel had somewhat explained to me where the church was located. I walked back and forth, back and forth, down two blocks of a busy street and I could not find the church. How could I miss it? This was after all the cathedral of Istanbul.

I took five of my children to serve with the Missionaries of Charity last week, helping out with their summer Bible camp for Burmese refugee children. It was an intense week, full of service and prayer and lots of fun.

Every summer, girls in grades 7-12 gather from around the Diocese of Savannah for Call to Holiness Summer Camp. This year’s camp took place June 23-26 at Georgia Primitive Baptist Camp in Claxton. In attendance were 70 campers, 20 counselors, three religious sisters, and numerous diocesan priests and seminarians. Sister Rita, Sister Celine, and Sister Sarah Elizabeth of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters traveled over 18 hours from the Immaculata Monastery & Spirituality Center in Nebraska to serve at camp.

Leftover Chinese food and straight to bed sounds like a blessing to most adults and all parents (Magan: “Can I do that, every night?”), but a curse to any child less than two weeks into summer vacation.
 
That’s what stared Jesse straight in the face after an epic fail in attempting to draw a rise out of his older brother at a computer coding class hosted by our local library.

Over the past four years the program’s high school participants and their college leaders have not only painted a number of homes, cleaned some yards and helped feed and clothe the needy but they have also encountered the people they’ve served as well as each other.

A new version of “The Lion King” will be released in theaters soon. Many of us eagerly anticipate viewing the film with our children and grandchildren. My children were young when the first version of the film was released. I have happy memories singing along with the film’s soundtrack. While we all loved the film, we never discussed in much depth the lessons it imparts. Perhaps this time around, I’ll have an opportunity to talk about it with my grandchildren.
