To make this program possible, we need your support!

Host families:  We need two families to host our leaders: one family for our two female leaders and one family for

our two male leaders.  The housing of team members takes place from their arrival Saturday afternoon until their departure the following Friday afternoon or Saturday.


Meals: We need seven different families/couples to volunteer to have the team over or take the team out for supper each night. 


Supervisors:  Team leaders will lead the classes/activities, but we would love to have some adults/teens to help assist them with the Grades 1-6 session.  This would be from 8:45am-2:45pm.


Donations:  If you have any rubber hoses or small plastic swimming pools you would be willing to lend to us, we would appreciate them. Please note: all items will be returned; however, the pools may come back cracked.


Snacks:  Throughout the week, the students will have a snack break in the morning.  If you would be willing to donate any food items for this, we would greatly appreciate it. 


If you can help in any of these areas, please give Ann at St. Henry’s parish office a call at 218-346-4240.

A Message From a 100.3 FM Listener

A listener to our local Catholic radio station recently described the station as a “lifeline” and the radio programming as providing “so much good information about our faith from good sources.  It gives me strength and hope, and it does the same for so many others who I listen to when they call in to the programs that take live callers.” If you haven’t yet discovered 100.3 FM, tune in to the programming which runs 24/7. If you are already a listener, encourage your friends and family to share in this resource for personal faith enrichment and tool for evangelization.
