Campa Mhuire Mháthair

This year, Holy Family Mission is proud to host Campa Mhuire Mháthair, an on-line Catholic Faith Camp, from 27th – 30th July 2020.

In just a few years, the Summer Faith Camps have spread throughout Ireland and are held in Ardmore, Dungarvan, Abbeyfeale, Mitchelstown, Tramore, Macroom, Ballina and Killarney.

Due to Covid 19, we are providing the same faith and fun-filled experience from the comfort of your own home, and it’s entirely free!

There is no need to register, just follow the links on this website and enjoy!

Activities

We will have many experienced young leaders guiding our activities, including Art, Drama, Music, Sport and Baking and our new “Into the Deep” sessions on Bible Stories!

For the first time, we have also included a session each day for First Holy Communion and Confirmation in preparation for those great sacraments.

All links and resources will be available for each day in the dropdown box on the above Summer Camps tab and will be free to view for a month but the live masses and prayer will be from 27th July to 30th.

We will have live-streamed morning prayer at 10 am

Daily Mass will be live-streamed at 12 noon. Both can be found on the Holy Family Mission homepage.

Ages

The various activities have been broken into age categories:

Lambs for 5-7 year olds,

Preachers for 8-10 year olds,

Friars for 11-12 year olds

For Families!  Every month during the academic year, Holy Family Mission hosts a Family Day.  This is a day-long event which includes Music, Drama, Games, Prayer, Mass, talks for adults, activities for children and teens, and includes lunch.  Each month has a different theme, focusing on different elements of the Faith: for instance, during October we had an All-Saints party, and in December we focused on Advent.  Our Family Day is a wonderful opportunity for families to spend a day together doing fun activities, and to meet other Catholic families.  Check the website for upcoming dates!

For children: Welcome to the Little Way Sunday School YouTube Channel. We are a family consisting of sisters; Roisin, Riaghan, Enya, and Treise, together with her husband, Joseph. We are here to help parents connect their children to the teachings of the Church by providing videos with; 1. an explanation of the Gospel of the day 2. a reflection from one of our priests 3. a weekly mission for the kids We certainly hope that you find our videos engaging, enjoyable, and a helpful resource for your family’s faith journey. And please follow us on Instagram and Facebook @ Little Way Sunday School

For teens / young people from 16 – 35:  Youth 2000 is a Catholic youth organisation that organises lively faith festivals, retreats, prayer groups and other events for young people aged 16-35 across the island of Ireland.  Check out the exciting E-Festival coming up in August!

One for the grown-ups too:  An Catholic online apostolate based in Ireland to support the official teachings of the Catholic Church through contemporary forms of media: to bring clarity and truth to what the Catholic Church teaches instead of the confusion and misinterpretation that people often associate with it.  Listen to Fr Patrick’s daily homilies along with other excellent speakers throughout Ireland each week!
