Salesian Youth Ministry volunteers David, Anya and Sarah are in the USA, about to begin work at Camp St Francis, a Salesian children's camp located on the Californian coast. David and Anya arrived in time for part of the Salesian Youth Leadership Conference (SYLC). David sent some thoughts on the experience so far, and will keep us updated as their summer mission continues.
Get up, get out, do good! This was the message that the Holy Father, Pope Francis left for our young people last summer during World Youth Day, in Krakow. This was also the theme for the Salesian Youth Leadership Conference this past week.
Anya and myself were lucky enough to join the conclusion of this week, as part of our summer mission in the American Western coast province. With Camp St Francis not starting for another few days yet, being able to reflect on the time we have spent here already is incredible.
