We formed ties to Blessed Trinity Church when our son, Joe Carvalho married Kelli McBride (both active parishioners of Blessed Trinity, Ocala, FL).
After visiting our son's family and his extended family and friends in Ocala, we approached Fr Pat; introduced ourselves and indicated to him that since we are here, we would like to help the parish in any way that he suggests, and that was our first BIG mistake; (just kidding) we are now busier than we've ever been; the southern sojourn has become a full-time mission, because...
Father Pat 'invited' us to establish a mission camp similar to the one we had in Canada.
After a long and intense search, in June 2013, we found & purchased 26 acres; 12 minutes NW of Blessed Trinity, with a lake of its own, based on given criteria and characteristics.
We have only just begun and there is a lot more to be done. We need all the help & support we can get to bring this place of Faith, Fun & Fellowship to fruition.
Please pray for our mission, participate and promote us to your family, friends & other parishioners, who may be interested in our vision/mission or in assisting us. We are making room for all ages.
If the mission is appreciated and financially supported by Memberships, Volunteers and Donations; the CCO will survive.
