Following Coronavirus - Summer Camp (Updated 6/3/20)

The governor held a press conference on June 1 and announced that sleep-over camps may not open in Phase 2. The governor's announcement has forced us to convert Camp Abbey into an extended day camp for the remainder of the summer. For camp details, please click on the 'Summer Camp' tab and then click on 'News & Announcements'.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us!
