Summer Camp Meals:
Each summer CCWG members provide over 1,800 meals over six weeks to the campers at the Missionaries of Charity Summer Camp. Our apostolic project for the Missionaries of Charity Summer Camp has been a huge success.
The Charlotte Catholic Women’s Group provided all of the lunches and snacks for two sessions of the camp. Each session is attend by approximately 80 plus children ranging in age from 4 – 12 years. The Missionaries of Charity Sisters are so appreciative of our generosity and efforts and the campers were delighted with the delicious food.
Here is a direct quote from one of our members after delivering food to the Sisters at the Summer Camp: “The Sisters were so appreciative. It is always a powerful spiritual experience to be there with such holy women – to see them serving God and the poor with such humility and selflessness. We gained much more from the day than they did!!”
–“It is very compelling that before Jesus explained God’s words, before He explained the beatitudes to the crowd, He felt compassion for them and fed them (Matthew 5). Only after they were fed did he start to teach them.” —Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
