Many of the teenagers who participated in Camp Quo Vadis during this past summer reunited at a high-school age Holy Hour at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception on Friday, September 29. The evening combined prayer and fellowship for diocesan teens.
“Camp Quo Vadis seeks to empower the youth of Long Island to encounter Jesus Christ in His Church and sacraments in the context of a summer camp, so that they can hear Him ask, ‘Quo Vadis?’ Where are you going?,” said Father Christopher Sullivan, associate pastor of Our Lady of Victory in Floral Park and the leader of Camp Quo Vadis.
