This Sunday at Christ Church 
Faith & Practice  

The Holy Family Summer Camp Project
During Faith and Practice, please come help Laura Zung brainstorm about her goal to send more kids from Holy Family to sleep away camp. The Holy Family School in West Lawndale educates children from Pre-K - 8th grade but summer options are slim.  She is not asking for money.  She welcomes your ideas about how to involve more kids and families in the adventure of summer camp which takes the Holy Family kids out of their neighborhood and into the broader world.  THIS is faith in action.

The Primary Choir Sings at 9:30 this Sunday! 
Arrive on time so you do not miss our first and second grade singers.
