Vocations Summer Camp

Call to Holiness summer camp for girls and Vocatio Dei summer camp for boys are packed with fun activities, inspiring talks and testimonies, Mass, Adoration, and a chance to interact daily with sisters, priests and seminarians. These camps are designed to help answer the questions that burn deep within: What does God want from me? How do I grow closer to Jesus and not lose my freedom? How do I prepare myself now for the decisions I will make in the future?

Call to Holiness (June 23-26, 2024) is open to rising 7th through graduating senior girls.
Vocatio Dei (June 26-29, 2024) is open to rising 7th through 10th grade boys.

Dress Code

An explanation of why we stipulate certain clothing

Clothes should reflect your dignity as a child of God and as such it should glorify Him. Certain circumstances require certain dress i.e. if you’re playing sports you should wear athletic clothing of some kind, swimming requires a bathing suit, attending a wedding one usually wears a nice dress or outfit, for Church you dress up to honor God, etc. One underlying thing that we should always keep in mind when we clothe our bodies is human modesty. Modesty fortifies the 6th and 9th Commandments. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) states:

“Modesty protects the mystery of persons and their love. It encourages patience and moderation in loving relationships; it requires that the conditions for the definitive giving and commitment of man and woman to one another be fulfilled. Modesty is decency. It inspires one’s choice of clothing. It keeps silence or reserve where there is evident risk of unhealthy curiosity. It is discreet.” (CCC 2522)

As Christians, we have the responsibility to keep our souls pure.

“…purity requires modesty, an integral part of temperance. Modesty protects the intimate center of the person. It means refusing to unveil what should remain hidden. It is ordered to chastity to whose sensitivity it bears witness. It guides how one looks at others and behaves toward them in conformity with the dignity of persons and their solidarity.” (CCC 2521)

Our clothing choices can affect others for good or bad. You can ask a friend if your clothing seems modest. And ask yourself: To what am I trying to draw attention in my appearance? Do I want people to remember me, or to think of me as a thing?
