Abbeyfeale Faith Camp 2016
 
Martina and Maria join John and Anne on this weeks programme to share the experience of Faith Camps and in particular the St Ita's Catholic Camp which was held in Abbeyfeale between August 2nd - 5th. The camp was for 5-12 years old in St Mary's National School. The camp included activities in art, drama, sport and faith teaching. 
The interview and discussion with Martina and Mariah is excerpted from the main podcast and is available HERE.
Previous programme about the Faith Camps was broadcast on 5th July 2015.


Gospel - Luke 13:22-30

 
 
Jesus went through one town and village after another, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him, ‘Lord, will only a few be saved?’ He said to them, ‘Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. When once the owner of the house has got up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, “Lord, open to us”, then in reply he will say to you, “I do not know where you come from.” Then you will begin to say, “We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.” But he will say, “I do not know where you come from; go away from me, all you evildoers!” There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrown out. Then people will come from east and west, from north and south, and will eat in the kingdom of God. Indeed, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.’
