Special thanks and information from Camp Monahan
I would like to thank you and the Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation and the grant committee for your support of Camp Monahan. The Donation of $2500 will assist us in achieving our goal of making Camp Monahan a healthier and safer place for the benefit of all the children, staff and community groups that use our facilities for years to come. As you may know, Camp Monahan is owned by the Archdiocese of Regina and just as we are welcome into the church we are also welcome at camp and just as we take ownership of our parishes so to should we take ownership of our camps. It is our goal as an association to reaffirm Monahan’s place in the catholic community, just as the churches and schools have a role to play in the faith of our community so do the camps. We are currently working on our partnership with the Regina Catholic School Division and also in developing a more active role in the youth ministries of our parishes. To understand the full potential camp provides to the community I would like to invite you, any committee members, and any brother Knight to contact me or Lisa to discuss the possibilities. I will be at Monahan from April 25 – May 2 and most weekends throughout the spring and summer, if you or anyone else would like to see the benefits that the grant will provide or be inspired by the beauty of the valley I would encourage you to visit us at Camp Monahan. Feel free to contact us anytime.
