300 teens in Champaign take 'pray and work' motto to HEART
CHAMPAIGN -- Rain doesn’t stop the Holy Spirit, nor did a few days of it keep nearly 300 young people from amplifying the Gospel during a weeklong Catholic HEART Workcamp here July 5-11.
“You have two choices in response to the will of God,” said Father Ed McCarthy, a priest of the Diocese of Orlando who served as camp chaplain. “’How little can I get by with?’ or the Ignatian model of 'What more can I do?’ Even when tired and wet, choose the magis, the more.”
And that’s what the teens -- representing five states -- chose whether their service sites were outdoors or indoors. The camp's base and host for daily Masses and other devotions was The High School of Saint Thomas More.
