“The Latin parish of Aleppo has opened a new summer center for children on the theme “Growing up with You.”
“Growing up with You With you.” This is the slogan chosen this year by the parish of St Francis of Assisi of Aleppo for the summer center. For two months nearly 350 young people will participate in several courses: singing, sports, arts and working languages.

“Growing up with You.” With Christ we grow and grow together, because we cannot grow in Christ if we do not grow together. We grow together if we grow in peace, accepting each other and if we can live out our human and Christian values.
A theme – as pointed out in the press release – “born from the common desire of parents and of the Church that our children grow up from a human point of view and from the spiritual, like Jesus in the house of Nazareth,” in age, wisdom and with the goodwill of God and others “.

Our goal is to help youth grow, not only to bring them here and let them play. Of course we want to play, be happy, but at the same time they can do something that improves them
Thr project this year was extended to other parishes of other rites of the city: a commitment to the growth of these children as disciples of Christ. Focusing on the good of each and placed in a position to develop their skills is one of the primary objectives of this camp.
Person in charge of summer camp
We want this summer center to be a “happy oasis” for them, a source of joy in their lives. I hope they can improve their relationship with Jesus and at the same time increase their talent and practice.
