Youth Camps Held in St. Margaret’s Guest House in Nazareth

The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem held the youth summer camps for the year 2013 under the slogan “But someone says to you, you have faith but I have deeds. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds” at St. Margaret's Guest House in Nazareth for the three age groups: elementary (Grade IV - VI), preparatory (Grade VII - IX), secondary (Grade X - XII).


Some 65 children participated in the first camp for the elementary age group, which was held during the period between (29/07/2013 until 02/08/2013), while in the second camp for the preparatory stage, which was held during the period between (05/08/2013 until 09/08/2013) nearly 95 persons participated. The third camp for the secondary stage (X - XII) will be held on Monday, 12/08/2013 until Friday, 16/8/2013.


The Rev’d Fuad Dagher, Pastor of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Shafa’amer, The Very Rev’d Hosam Naoum, Dean of St. George’s Cathedral, led the first camp. The Rev’d Fuad Dagher and the Rev’d Nael Abu Rahmou, Pastor of St. Mathew’s Church in Zababdeh, along with a number of local leaders, participated in the second camp.  In addition, six foreign volunteers from the Diocese of Southwell Nottingham in England, a twin with the Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East, participated in the camp.


The Rev’d Nael Abu Rahmoun will be the sponsor of the third camp for the secondary stage (Grade X - XII), assisted by The Rev’d Fuad Dagher.


His Grace Bishop Suhail Dawani, accompanied by the Rev’d Canon John Organ, Chaplain to Bishop Suheil, The Very Rev’d Dean Hosam Naoum, Archdeacon Samuel Burhom, and The Rev’d Canon Hatem Shehadeh, paid a visit to the camp on Thursday afternoon, 08/08/2013.  The Rev’d Fuad Dagher and the Rev’d Nael Abu Rahmouin received His Grace and the accompanying delegation, where the participants presented spiritual hymns led by the Rev’d Fuad Dagher and the worship team.
