2018 Kurs Encampment – “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

The 2018 Kurs Encampment

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner.  That means it is time once again for the annual Kurs encampment.  Our theme this year is “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

Registration and drop off of campers will be Saturday, June 30th, starting at 9:00 a.m.

The registration time is earlier this year because our “INDEPENDENCE DAY” Celebration
is being celebrated on that day, with Holy Mass at Noon, celebrated by
The Most Rev. Anthony Mikovsky, Prime Bishop of the Polish National Catholic Church. 

The Y.M.S. of R. picnic will follow Mass.   There will be no Mass or Picnic on July 4th.

 Pick up of campers will be Saturday, July 7th, at 12:00 Noon.

The Kurs encampment is a Polish National Catholic Church Tradition sponsored by The Y.M.S. of R.

Rates:               Polish National Catholic Church Member- $225.00 per child.
Non P.N.C.C. member rate- $275.00 per child.

The reasonable rates will provide your child with 7 days of camp.  They will participate in team building and leadership activities that will build lifelong friendships.  The campers will be under the supervision of the Kurs counselors who were all campers themselves and want to make your child’s experience as memorable and enjoyable as possible.  It is their hard work and dedication that makes the Kurs experience possible.

Our theme “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith,” is a well-known passage and is significant for believers today because it serves as a stark reminder that the Christian life is a struggle against evil—within ourselves and in the world.  Our staff will socially incorporate our theme with many activities and themes around the Olympics.

Camper Application and Health History Forms are due back by
Saturday, June 16, 2018.

Countdown to Convo 2018

The Central Diocese of the Polish National Catholic Church is proud to announce that Convo 2018 will be held on the campus of The University of Scranton in Scranton, PA, July 23 through July 27, 2018.

YES! It’s time to get ready for the next P.N.C.C. National Youth Convocation.  Clear your schedule, reserve the last week of July 2018, and get ready for the absolutely best week of the year.

We have a great committee of hard-working youth who are leading all planning efforts:

President, Maddie Hughes; Vice President, Jake Gerardi;  2nd Vice president for Finance, Elizabeth Pfohl; Secretary, Rebecca Kotula; Treasurer, Nicholas Pfohl; Board Members, Timmy Stankowski, Jacob Stankowski, Victoria Konicki, Halle Maciag, Michael Cyman, Alex Mludzik, Zuzanna Pociecha, and Matt Kotula. There are also many other UYA members who are participating in many capacities alongside their committee.

President Maddie Hughes is putting out an open invitation to any young person in the Central Diocese to feel welcome in joining in the preparations of this fantastic event: “For kids interested in attending, you won’t regret it if you do. I have gone to three Convos so far.  At each one, I have learned so much about our Church and have also made some of the best friends in the world. Now, I can say I have friends in all different states and not just from my own parish.  You may not know what it’s all about, it’s a little different each time, but don’t worry. COME ANYWAY! This is an opportunity for kids young and old… even adults are welcome.”

If you feel this is the year you want to be part of a P.N.C.C. National Youth Convocation, we would love your personal support as well as the support of your parishes and seniorates.  Reach out to us and ask how you can help; there will be many types of opportunities, for example; chaperoning or underwriting portions of entertainment and supplies.  Something big or something small, all are equally important and are needed.  You are needed.
