Morning Star in El Paso, Texas!

Immaculate Conception Parish  in downtown El Paso, Texas welcomed the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on May 20th for a weekend “mini”camp for girls in the spirit of Morning Star Camps. 

elpaso16Over 30 girls from ages 6 to 18 joined in the event which was conducted by Sister Agnes Mary, MICM and Sister Martina Marie, MICM. The Sisters worked with the girls, re-enforcing the truths of our Holy Faith in a program that was accompanied with songs, arts and crafts and games in the park. 

Fathers Shannon and O’Neill, FSSP, started each day with the Holy Mass in the beautiful ex-pro cathedral of El Paso, now staffed by this Latin Mass community. The Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet also re-enforced the prayer life of the girls throughout the day. Parents contributed to the success of the camp with contributions of food and supervision. 

On May 22nd,  parishioners assembled in the parish hall for an inspirational explanation on the spirituality of Saint Louis de Montfort in “True Devotion,” the spirituality of the Slaves. This was given by Sr. Martina Marie, MICM, whose family still lives in El Paso. May God bless this beautiful community and all our young campers!
