2019 Teen Pilgrim: "I Want To Come Back Next Year!"

For the first time this year, OLPH Shrine Pilgrimage, Olympia, had a special teen program led by popular Eastern Catholic youth speaker Joshua Mangels. I think it is safe to say that the program was a raving success.

Their were games, talks, skits and camp fire songs. Resident and visiting pilgrim youth bonded quickly. In fact, we had trouble getting them unstuck.

Take a look:

Here are some comments:

Anna: " It was just perfect!"

Neil: " Mr. Mangels was very funny." ( this is a compliment :)

Timothy: "We started campfire songs and I thought: This is where I belong."

Anna: " I was worried about the games but they were great. We really got to know each other."

Timothy: "I was trying to think of excuses to come out next summer."

Forrest (father of eight): "We' re coming back."

Thank you, Josh, perhaps you could also come back next year?
