Summertime in Alabama! Hot and humid! Local friends, neighboring parishes, Salesian Cooperators, Gospel Roads, a parish youth group from Kansas, volunteers from John Carroll Catholic High School, a youth group from Our Lady of Lourdes parish in Birmingham, coach Allen Murphy, and Sister Rita Vogelsang, S.O.S., helped to make the summer program at Holy Rosary a complete success. The Ladies Guild from St. Theresa, along with the Vietnamese Catholic Community of Birmingham provided meals. In addition the Knights of Columbus helped with transportation during this five week program. Without these groups we would not be able to run our summer program at Holy Rosary. The fee to participate was five dollars – a dollar a week. Most cannot afford it. We are indeed blessed especially with the help of St. Peter’s Parish Social Justice Committee who provide food, money, and clothing during the year and especially during the summer. We have also received donations from complete strangers, some who were campers there many years ago and hand you a dollar or two for the kids! Hot and humid, to say the least. But it certainly has been a memorable summer for youngsters who have nothing.
