|CK Net in Poland: poised to grow!|
Krakow, September 3, 2007. – The Legionary center for apostolate
in Krakow planted good seeds for the future with five
growing summer camps for Polish boys in various European countries,
from Ireland to Latvia. The most dramatic growth occurred in
CampNet, in the Polish town of Nowy Sacz.
Growth happens not
only in numbers, but also in the attitude of commitment
among the lay people. In the Nowy Sacz summer camp,
a total of 43 children participated for six days in
a wide variety of activities. If the facilities could have
held more children, more would have joined, and there are
already 120 children who want to participate in next year’s
CampNet. There was a strong commitment behind these numbers: all
of the activities were prepared by a team of seven
lay people who looked after the children with attentive care
24 hours a day.
It was not only the adults who
showed such outstanding commitment. Older Catholic Kids’ Net “graduates”
who are now first stage ECYD boys took an
active role in organizing the monthly NET activities in
Nowy Sacz. Their apostolic zeal and commitment to the children
made the camp a great success for everyone.

Seeds of hope
start small—as small as the little child who discovers Christ
for the first time and then learns how to give
him to others. But these seeds of faith, hope, and
committed charity grow into the biggest tree of all: a
contagious life of grace at the service of the Kingdom.
Let’s pray for the ongoing success of all apostles who
work in the mission territories of the New Evangelization, that
their work in the Lord’s vineyard will continue to bear
much fruit, one soul at a time.
