BENEFITING: MESSAGE OF HOPE FOUNDATION
The Sports Youth Ministry Program and the MOH Sports Camps were created as a result of the present day realities that we now face as a faith community and culture:
- 25% Mass Attendance
- Some refer to sports as the fastest growing ‘religion’ in America
- Youth Sports are becoming too expensive for the average family
- ‘One of the great evils of our time is to not intentional teach the faith, especially to our children’
As a result, we want to use the power, attractiveness, and greatness of sports to teach our faith and expose our kids to the mercy of God’s Love for them.
In order to do so, we need your help….
Sports Youth Ministry Program
The Sports Youth Ministry Program is a free 6 week program that is designed to teach the faith while playing sports. Each week the kids play a different sport where they learn what it means to love God, others, and self in a fun and non-threatening environment. The entire program is based upon the Sunday Liturgy so it is a great avenue for both the kids and their parents to prepare for Church on Sunday.
Your help will not only keep this program free for those who wish to participate but will also allow us to spread the message. We want to bring this program to any parish/church who wants it. We will offer all materials and resources while at the same time provide training for the volunteers who wish to run the program. We have multiple church communities who want to start right away…your help will allow us to make sure that this happens.
MOH Sports Camps
The MOH Sports Camps are designed to teach a virtuous way of life both on and off the sidelines of sports. The kids experience a variety of different sports and games throughout the week while being immersed into their faith. Each day of camp brings a virtue of the day along with it ‘Story Time’ which brings home the virtue of the day in an engaging way.
Your donation will help subsidize the costs of the camp to ensure that it remains affordable to those who wish to come.
