and sons celebrated the 2013 weekend of the Solemnity of
the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)
with a campout event at Camp River Ridge near
Eighty-three fathers and sons gathered from Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky
on June 1-2, 2013, for activities like fishing, hiking and
making s’mores around the bonfire. Campers enjoyed organized sports like
father/son football, dodgeball and archery, mixed in with spiritual talks
on virtue, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration and confession.
The culmination of the event was a Corpus Christi Eucharistic
procession on the feast day.
The event, sponsored Conquest and SportsLeader, is held twice a year in the spring and
was the largest group we’ve had since the 2009 campout,"
said Fr. Daniel Brandenburg LC, one of the priests who
offered spiritual support during the campout. "Mark your calendars for
the next father/son campout on September 7-8, 2013."
