OLPH CYO tours TexasAug 10th, 2010 | By Terri Sercovich | Category: school news
The early sunrise departure on July 25, marked the beginning of the annual summer excursion for Our Lady Of Perpetual Help’s Catholic Youth Organization. Thirty-five CYO members left Belle Chasse at 5 a.m. with their nine adult supervisors, including the church pastor, Fr. Billy O’Riordan. Their destination was set for San Antonio, Texas.
Upon arrival at their hotel, the travelers enjoyed pizza, swimming and games. In the days to follow, they visited Seaworld, Schlitterbahn Water Park, and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. One evening found the group testing their skills at putt-putt golf and on the ice skating rink. All who met these young parishioners commented on how well-behaved they were, a tribute to their parents and devoted leaders. As they headed back to Belle Chasse on July 29, memories were shared and friendships were bonded.
The CYO is open to new members; any high school student is welcome.
