This Month's Krier
Teens In Action
Relay for Life
Blessed with a beautiful, sunny day, Teens in Action (TIA) a youth group at St. Lawrence Church washed cars, sold baked goods, barbequed and sold tag sale items, raising over $1,300 last month to help fund a mission trip this summer.

The fundraiser benefited the student's week-long trip to a Catholic Heart Camp in North Arlington, NJ. Twenty-seven local students and six chaperones will join up to 400 other teenagers from across the country at the camp where they will work on projects at senior citizen homes, area parish needs, homeless shelters, day care centers, homes for persons with disabilities, and soup kitchens.

Campers sleep on classroom floors at the Queen of Peace High School which has air-conditioning in the classrooms as well as the gymnasium. Two floors are used for sleeping and the third floor includes the gym, cafeteria and showers.

Catholic Heart Camp was founded in 1993 and now boasts 13,000 participants this summer, in over 50 different cities. Participants serve and restore homes and hearts, feed the hungry, lift the spirits of children, give hope to the disabled, and provide help through partnerships with social agencies.
