The Saint Katherine Philoptochos Rebecca Circle hosted the Kids 'n' Cancer Loukoumades Fundraiser in February, and the proceeds made it possible for seven children to attend Camp Agape at the Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center this summer. The Camp is for children and their families who are affected by cancer, to spend a week together bonding with fellowship and fun activities like planting trees, singing, and swimming. The Philoptochos would like to thank our Saint Katherine parishioners for their generous support of Kids 'n' Cancer!
