Cardinal Rigali to Visit Summer Camp in Philadelphia
For 2nd Year the Theme is Peace

Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, will visit one of the almost 600 camp sites served by the Summer Meals Program of Nutritional Development Services (NDS) of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Approximately 30,000 children are served by the program. For the second year in a row, the theme is peace. Campers will present Cardinal Rigali with a short presentation about what it means to them to be a peacemaker. Cardinal Rigali will also be presented with a peace quilt. NDS provides each site with activities related to informing campers about peace. Attendees are encouraged to advocate for peace in their own lives and community.
