Camp Caritas welcomed some 120 youths for a faith formation experience June 21-25, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, at Msgr. Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School in Drexel Hill. The camp, which Archbishop Nelson Perez visited and celebrated Mass June 23, will aid in the students’ preparations to receive the sacrament of confirmation this year and next. Small groups were led by a catechist and the students took part in activities, guest speaker presentations, acts of service, catechism lessons and daily Mass. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
