Kids from the West District holding information cards on a saint at the camp’s Faith Station.
During the Nov 27-Dec 1 camp, held at the Church of St Ignatius, they learnt more about the Eucharistic celebration through various fun activities.
The event, which had the theme, Marvellous Mystery: The Mass Comes Alive!, saw the 4 to 12 year olds visiting various stations, each one focusing on an aspect of the Mass.
Activities on the last day highlighted that the Mass was a call for all to be the light of Christ to others. The children were encouraged to grow in the virtues of patience, peace, unity, faith and generosity.
During the closing Mass, Jesuit Father Jerome Leon emphasised that the Mass was not only a shared meal that nourished us spiritually, it was also about building our relationship with God and with others – a communion.
He added that the Mass was a call to reach out in charity to serve especially those in need.
One young participant, four-year-old Christie De Cunha, shared that her favourite station was the Music Station. She also learnt that “Jesus is with us every day. The Mass is Jesus sharing a meal … with me and you.”
The camp was organised by representatives from the West District parishes.
